David Beckham, On for the England Spain Friendly on Feb 11

David Beckham has been included in Fabio Capello's England squad for the friendly match against Spain on 11 February. Beckham has been impressive during his loan spell with AC Milan and will now be given the chance to equal Bobby Moore's record of 108 England appearances.

Beckham played for AC Milan in their 1-1 draw at home to Reggina in Italy's Serie A on Saturday, a result which leaves his team eight points behind arch-rivals Inter at the top of the league.

His attempts to equal Moore's outfield caps record have previously been frustrated - he was left out of the squad that beat Germany in Berlin in November - but Capello had hinted the 33-year-old was likely to win a recall.

Fabio Capello said, "He is a media star and for this reason all the fans spoke about him in this way before he arrived; like a star not a player. But now he has played three games, and every game has been better."
