Beckham to set new record

If Beckham takes the field in tomorrow's friendly match against Slovakia, he will become England's most-capped outfield player with a total of 109 caps, and could even take Peter Shilton's record of 125 caps if he plays all the way through to the World Cup.
Having previously been convinced that his international career was over at 94 caps, anything is now considered a bonus, and this is due in no small part to his new role in Milan. Capello himself has encouraged the move and has done his part to secure the original loan period. All the indications are that Beckham will be a force to be reckoned with again on the international stage as long as he can stay injury-free and maintain his excellent fitness levels.
Bobby Moore previously held the record of 108 caps which Beckham has already equalled. Of course there are more opportunities to gain international caps nowadays, but the demands on players are such that they are now much more atheltic.
