Soccer star David Beckham has been banned from playing with his kids by wife VICTORIA, because she fears he'll get injured before the World Cup. The tournament begins next week (09JUN06), and the former SPICE GIRL is worried her husband will suffer a similar fate to fellow England squad member WAYNE ROONEY - who has a fractured foot. When the glamorous couple's seven-year-old son Brooklyn kicked a football over a wall recently, Victoria banned David from fetching it. He explains, "She told me, 'Seriously David, the World Cup is in a few weeks. Don't be jumping over walls!'"
