Beckham to play against France?

A small window of opportunity opens up for England star David Beckham. Last month he was dropped from the squad by new England coach Fabio Capello for fitness reasons, but the hardline Italian coach says that should Becks be in full match fitness, then he will certainly feature against France later this month in another international friendly.

Capello says:

Los Angeles Galaxy play in Dallas on 14th March and (assistant manager) Franco Baldini or I will go to see him and assess his fitness.

He is in contention for France. We will check on him in Dallas and then we will decide whether he will be fit for that squad.

He will get his 100th cap if he is fit and in form.

I know Beckham very well from Real Madrid and I hope David will play the 100th game and get that cap.

I understand from reading his last interview that at this moment his fitness isn’t good and I will phone him because I want to know exactly what he thinks about his fitness.

Becks is desperate to get his magical 100th cap for England but doubt remains on how many caps he shall get after that. After all, Capello wants to take England into a new era and Beckham is one of the old guards.
