Capello: Beckham will get his 100th England cap

England boss Fabio Capello has assured LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham that he will get the chance to earn his 100th cap.

Capello met representatives of the official England supporters' club at Soho Square yesterday and discussed Beckham's situation.

The Italian said he or his assistant, Franco Baldini, would travel to the U.S. later this month to see the 32-year-old in action for Los Angeles Galaxy.

Asked directly by supporters whether they could be confident of seeing Beckham reach the milestone of 100 caps, he said: "Yes. I know Beckham very well from Madrid and I hope David will play the 100th game and get the cap.

"I understand from reading his last interview that at this moment his fitness isn't good. I will phone him because I want to know exactly what he thinks.

"But LA play in Dallas on March 14. Franco or I will go to see him and assess his fitness then. He is in contention for France. But if he is fit and in form then he will get his 100th cap."
