David Beckham Gets His 108 Cap For England

David Beckham's England career has been nothing if not eventful.

The 33-year-old midfielder, recalled to the squad after impressing Fabio Capello with his recent displays for AC Milan, equalled Bobby Moore's outfield record of 108 caps when he came on as a second-half substitute in a 2-0 defeat by Spain tonight.

He certainly did enough to suggest his hope of playing on for his country up to and including next year's World Cup in South Africa could be realised.

If he does, Beckham might yet eclipse former goalkeeper Peter Shilton as England's most capped player of all time -- a landmark that would require another 18 appearances.

By the time the action kicks off in South Africa, Beckham will have turned 35 and have been representing his country for almost 14 years, having made his debut at 21-year-old against Moldova on September 1, 1996.

The only downside was David getting booked during the game.
