WOLVES striker Chris Iwelumo broke a bone in his foot this afternoon during our first friendly in Australia.

The injury which was made almost fashionable by England midfielder David Beckham was almost unheard of a few years ago, but now every foot injury always appears to be a metatarsal break.

The 30-year-old striker was taken off during the game, after Sylvan Ebanks-Blake scored the games only goal as Wolves defeated Perth Glory.

Vital Wolves Comment: Mick McCarthy's striking options was already a hot topic on our forum. With Iwelumo looking likely to miss the start of the season, who will fill his boots?

Breaks The Beckham Bone! Funny that, we were saying at work that no one ever broke a metatarsal before Beckham, and now it's quite fashionable!!
