Beckham Equals Moore's record of 108 England Caps

David Beckham equalled Bobby Moore's record of 108 England caps for an outfield player after coming on as a substitute in the 2-0 defeat in Spain. The 33-year-old midfielder, currently on loan at AC Milan, joins Moore behind goalkeeper Peter Shilton, England's record appearance holder with 125 caps. He replaced Middlesbrough's Stewart Downing at the start of the second half with England trailing 1-0 at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan in Seville. He showed glimpses of his quality with some trademark long passes, but his night was tempered when he was booked for dissent in the closing stages of the match.

This new turn in David Beckham's career is really becoming interesting and I just hope that followers won't be disappointed. Many are hopeful that the situation with LA Galaxy and AC Milan would be resolved as soon as possible, knowing that Beckham has shown interest in the latter.
