Cape Town - In a massive boost for England's Soccer World Cup hopes, a local sangoma is believed to have cured David Beckham's Achilles' injury.

Beckham, who ruptured his Achilles' tendon while playing for AC Milan in Italy last month, was expected to be sidelined for up to six months.

However, a visit to an Eastern Cape Sangoma, the details of which were kept under wraps until today, appears to have paid off for the star midfielder who is back in training and a certainty to be included in Fabio Capello's England squad for the tournament starting on June 11.

In a report in the local Aprilfoolsdayville newspaper, the sangoma was quoted as saying: "Mr Victoria Beckham has been cured. He is fine to play in the tournament."
