What is Capello thinking?

The game in Trinidad was admittedly largely a PR exercise tightly related to England's bid to host the World Cup. The game was never seriously competitive and many were left wondering whether there was any value in the game at all.
Curious then, that Capello should choose that game to hand Beckham the captain's armband. Some have suggested that sentiment played a part, but Capello is not usually given to sentiment. Although John Terry was not present (many people's favourite for the captaincy), Rio Ferdinand was surely more likely to wear the armband than Beckham?
I hope this odd choice signifies that Capello has serious plans for Beckham in the run-up to the next World Cup and indeed sentiment had nothing to do with the choice. One more preparation game to come in August before World Cup qualification starts in earnest in September...

Beckham deserves the captain armbad...at least for that game. John Terry is a great captain but Beckham has the right to wear the captain's armband.
