Sports log: David Beckham, 38, to retire at season’s end

SOCCER

David Beckham is retiring from soccer, ending a career in which he transcended the sport with forays into fashion and a marriage to a pop star that made him a global celebrity. The 38-year-old former England captain, who recently won a league title in a fourth country with Paris Saint-Germain, said Thursday he will quit after the season. Beckham has two more matches left at PSG — against Brest on Saturday and at Lorient on May 26 . . . Landon Donovan was left off the 29-man US roster for a training camp ahead of a trio of World Cup qualifiers next month, but American coach Jurgen Klinsmann anticipates he will rejoin the team at an unspecified point . . . The Revolution waived midfielder Sainey Nyassi. The 24-year-old Gambian, who made 104 regular-season appearances with New England, including 75 starts, had eight goals and four assists since signing with the club in 2007 as a youth international player.
