David Beckham Recalled For The England

As expected David Beckham has been recalled to the England squad for the friendly against Austria on Friday, 16 November and the Euro 2008 qualifier against Croatia on Wednesday, 21 November (I am going to this game).

David has 97 caps and having confirmed his fitness to Steve McClaren during the coach's trip to LA last weekend, these 2 games will take him to 99 caps. However, should England fail to reach next summer's finals David could find himself surplus to requirements by the time they head into a planned February friendly with Switzerland, as he would not have played any competitive football since the Croatia game on 21 November, which would be just over 2 months.

Lets hope England qualifies and David reaches 100 caps.

Full squad: Robinson (Tottenham), James (Portsmouth), Carson (Liverpool, on loan at Aston Villa); Richards (Man City), P Neville (Everton), Brown (Man Utd), Campbell (Portsmouth), Lescott (Everton), A Cole (Chelsea), Bridge (Chelsea), Shorey (Reading); Beckham (LA Galaxy), Wright-Phillips (Chelsea), Bentley (Blackburn), Lampard (Chelsea), Gerrard (Liverpool), Barry (Aston Villa), J Cole (Chelsea), Downing (Middlesbrough), Hargreaves (Man Utd), Young (Aston Villa); Owen (Newcastle), Rooney (Man Utd), Crouch (Liverpool), Smith (Newcastle), Defoe (Tottenham).
