England's World Cup trail

The World Cup starts this weekend for England as they take on Andorra at the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona Saturday 6th September. Beckham is in the 23-strong squad along with Jimmy Bullard for the first time, Joleon Lescott makes a return to the squad.
Rooney makes the squad, but Owen, Gerrard and Carrick are ruled out through injury.
The Andorra match will be followed by a match against Croatia in Zagreb on the 10th, where England will be looking for revenge for getting beaten at Wembley and thus failing to qualify for Euro 2008.
If David James can perform anything like he did for Portsmouth last week, we could be on target for a clean sheet at least...
Bad News for Galaxy, as they could do with David Beckham to help them break their excessively long spell without a win.
