LA Galaxy captain Landon Donovan says everyone at the club are upset for teammate David Beckham over his Achilles injury.
England ace Becks, 34, was reduced to tears after tearing his Achilles tendon playing for AC Milan on Sunday.
The injury curtailed the midfielder's loan spell in Italy but more importantly ended his hopes of playing in a fourth consecutive World Cup.
And Donovan admits he wasted no time in sending his sympathy to Becks, who underwent surgery in Finland on Tuesday.
The Galaxy skipper, who enjoyed a 10-week loan spell at Everton, said: "First and foremost, we are devastated for David.
"Those of us in the locker room know how much it meant to him to give himself a chance to play in the World Cup."
