Nationwide Building Society: Beckham Could Still Play England Internationals

Share Article

Fabio Capello has told David Beckham his international career can extend into his mid-thirties if he maintains his form for England during the World Cup qualifiers.

He will not be looking at your birth certificate or where you are playing - he will look at what you are delivering for him. That is all any manager can do.

Former England international, Sir Trevor Brooking, has said that he sees no reason why Fabio Capello will not consider playing David Beckham during the coming World Cup qualifiers.

Brooking, speaking at an event organised by England Team Sponsors Nationwide Building Society said: "He will not be looking at your birth certificate or where you are playing - he will look at what you are delivering for him. That is all any manager can do."

Now in his 30's, David Beckham looked to have brought the curtain down on his international career following his lucrative move to America to play Major League Soccer with LA Galaxy.

But Beckham has showed he still has the appetite to compete at the highest level and has impressed Capello with his attitude both on and off the pitch.

Sir Trevor also played for England well into his thirties and believes Capello will keep picking Beckham if he maintains his current form.
