England boss McClaren: Beckham ambition as big as ever

England boss Steve McClaren admits LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham's international ambitions are as strong as ever.

"I have spoken with David, and he is working towards being fit for Croatia," said McClaren. "He is in light training at the moment and hopes to be in contention for that squad.

"David's state of mind is the same as it always has been.

"He is a true patriot who loves playing for England. We saw that when he came back into the squad last summer, and it is still his motivation and mindset."
