A place in Euro 2012 a possibility?
David Beckham has insisted his dream of playing for England again is far from over.
The 36-year-old has enjoyed a glittering international career, but doesn’t seem to be part of current manager Fabio Capello’s plans.
But Beckham said: ‘I’m still playing well, I’m still fit and I haven’t retired from international football.
‘I’m never going to say it’s over for me with England.
‘If there are players injured or players out, if I’m ever needed, then of course I’m available.’
Beckham is winning fresh plaudits in the US after leading LA Galaxy into the play-offs.
He is currently being courted by French outfit Paris St Germain.
And if has his way, Beckham will one day wear the England shirt again.
He added in the Mirror: ‘I would love to play for England again – and I believe I will.’

Could this premonition come to pass? Is David Beckham being a tad over confident? Well there is no doubt that the 36 year old is having a great season in the MLS this term but it’s hard to equate form in a league that is at best average and comparable to say the Dutch Eredivisie, and as such a call up under Fabio Capello may be a long shot.
However if the former Man United and Real Madrid man gets a move to Europe in January then perhaps form shown in a top league on the continent could help make a recall to the national team possible. With the Olympics around the corner, perhaps the midfielder will be enlisted in some way to help Stuart Pearce?
