Beckham in Capello’s plans for World Cup

England coach Fabio Capello intends to bring David Beckham to

the World Cup if the Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder plays regularly

in his second stint with AC Milan.

In an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport on Monday, Capello

was asked if he would bring the 34-year-old former England captain

to South Africa.

The coach replied: “Of course, if he plays and is well

physically. I don’t look at ages. I look at skill and Beckham has a

lot. He’s serious, a real professional and he’s really dedicated to

making the World Cup squad.”

Beckham was due to arrive in Italy on Monday for his second loan

with Milan. He also played with the European club last season.

England opens the World Cup on June 12 against the United

States.
