Former England captain David Beckham will sit out the next game after he received a ban from Major League Soccer (MLS) for kicking a ball at an opponent in Los Angeles Galaxy's loss at San Jose.

Beckham received the ban on Thursday for kicking the ball at San Jose’s Sam Cronin during the 3-4 loss Saturday.

Cronin was down in the penalty box at the time, and Beckham’s kick set off a prolonged argument between the teams, reported Xinhua. Beckham was issued a yellow card for the incident. He missed Galaxy’s home loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday.
