David Beckham missed the Los Angeles Galaxy's 2-0 loss to the Columbus Crew last weekend with an inflamed ankle. That won't prevent him from being ready against the Chicago Fire on Friday, says the England midfielder.
The game will have playoff implications. Each team is second in its respective division, on 41 points, so both the Galaxy and the Fire will be eager to move three points closer to a playoff berth.
"You can't go into games thinking about anything else apart from winning," said Beckham.
