Beckham says it would be unfair...

...to have picked him over other players for the friendly international against Switzerland taking place tonight.
He rightly observed that many Premiership players have played 15 full-tilt games over the last two months while Beckham has been training with the Arsenal squad. The MLS season does not get under way until March, and hopefully he will take his chances to prove his fitness on the pitch to return to the England squad for that elusive 100th cap. Naturally Beckham acknowledges his disappointment stating that every player wants to be picked, however he knows Capello of old and will not expect favours from his old manager.
Beckham has also stated that he thinks that Capello is the right man for the job and respects his decision-making.
Gerrard has been given the captain's armband for tonight's match, but Capello will not release the starting lineup until the last moment.
