Manager Steve McClaren is considering bringing back the former skipper for the showpiece friendly against Brazil, which marks the team’s international return to Wembley on June 1, and the crucial European Championship qualifier in Estonia five days later.

McClaren has been impressed by both Beckham’s form and attitude since his return to the Real Madrid team. It is widely acknowledged in the Spanish capital that the 32-year-old midfielder’s resurgence has been instrumental in the team’s march to the top of the table.

The England boss is also aware that would-be successors to Beckham’s role on the right side of midfield have not had the impact he had hoped.

McClaren is due to name his squad on Saturday following the England B friendly against Albania at Burnley on Friday night. McClaren's decision was to be based on how well David performed yesterday at Recreativo Huelva. Seeing as he played very well and assisted in one of the goals there is no reason why he should not be picked.

In the Saturday Times interview David said "I still want to play for my country and I still believe I can do it." Oh yes you can David and lets hope you do.
