Capello: Beckham not in England team for free-kicks

England boss Fabio Capello insists he doesn't play LA Galaxy's David Beckham just because of his free-kick expertise.

"People try to find things that are not correct," Capello said. "Beckham plays not only for free-kicks and set-pieces, but because he plays well.

"With Beckham, Rio (Ferdinand) or John Terry it is the same, if they do not play well they are not going to play."
