The Brazil international, who is happy to see the return of Beckham to former club AC Milan, believes the LA Galaxy midfielder is a must for the England team as well as being one of the smartest players he has shared the pitch with.
"I am pleased he is going back to Milan, even though I am no longer there.
"I see that as a great move by Milan to take him again because he will be important to them, as he showed last season.
"But Milan will also be important to him with the World Cup coming up.
"Through playing in Milan in Serie A and Europe, David will be in the right condition next summer, and that is certain to help England at the World Cup.
"That's why Capello must include David in his squad. There is no-one else who has the experience and quality of Beckham.
