“Wazza, I always wanted to meet you.”

Poor wee Becks won’t be playing in the World Cup this summer, but he will still get to hang around the England camp as a guest of Fabio Capello.

According to the Sun, F-Cap has told Becks he’s welcome to hang out in England’s World Cup camp, presumably as a good-luck mascot.

I’m not a big fan of letting such a big tabloid target as Beckham get in the way of England’s business, and I’m sure Capello wouldn’t want Beckham’s presence to become anything like a circus. Let’s hope it’s a one-day invite, rather than a “Bring your flip flops, towel and sun cream” sort of invite.
