Highlights of Dave’s ahead-of-schedule comeback after his potentially career-ending Achilles injury (he’s a resilient sod, is Becks). Beckham played the final 20 minutes of LA Galaxy’s 3-1 victory against Columbus Crew, in which time he was booked for a clumsy challenge and scored exactly no goals.
Still, it’s great to see him back in action, running around like a kid; I really admire his guts and enthusiasm. But would I bring him back into the England fold? No way, that ship has sailed. In the light of England’s strong start to its Euro 2012 qualifying group. Fabio Capello must stick with youth and potential – there can be no looking back and no sentimental recalls. Sorry Dave, you’ve had your time at international level.
