Asia update, Capello to travel to US?

After losing a game to FC Seoul, Galaxy redeemed themselves with a resounding 3-0 defeat of Shanghai-Hong Kong yesterday.
Beckham set up the first goal, but gave his team a scare by limping off after 70 minutes with a thigh injury. It turned out to be dead-leg rather than a more serious lasting injury. There should be little danger of his not being ready to take part in the last game of the Asian mini-tour against Hong Kong Union on Sunday.

The good news is that Capello is prepared to seriously consider Beckham for the upcoming England International friendlies against France and possibly the USA. Plans are being made for either Capello himself or Franco Baldini to visit Dallas to see him play and assess his fitness on March 14th. Capello has also been heard to express the view that he personally hopes Beckham can reach the 100 cap goal and has declared that he is in contention for a place in the squad for the game in France.

Hi There
The consensus is that it was just a 'dead-leg' afetr a knock in the first half, although this CAN actually be quite debilitating, early indications are good...
