Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder David Beckham has to be suspended for a game due to his latest yellow card.

The former England captain received the booking for a reckless tackle during the first half of Wednesday's scoreless draw against Toronto FC. It was his league-high fifth yellow card through six games.

Beckham must sit out Sunday's Major League Soccer match against the Chicago Fire.

Beckham's contract with Galaxy will expire in the year, but recently the soccer star said he'd be open to returning to MLS after this season.
