Capello: Beckham deserves England place

England boss Fabio Capello was happy to name LA Galaxy star David Beckham in his squad for next week's friendly in France.

Capello said: "I always said that when David Beckham was fit he could be in the squad.

"I have had good reports on him from Franco Baldini, who watched him on Saturday night, and also from his club. I know a lot about David Beckham and what he can offer the team."

Manchester City boss and former England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson also remarked: "I am very happy for David, of course.

"I think he deserves to have his 100th cap - but if he is going to start or come on, I have no idea."
