LA Galaxy's Beckham targets South Africa 2010

LA Galaxy star David Beckham wants to help England qualify for the 2010 World Cup after receiving encouragement this week from coach Fabio Capello over his 100 cap bid.

A source told the Mirror: "David was delighted to see what Fabio said about him, because it proves what he was told last month was true and that he will be judged on what he is doing on the pitch.

"David knows Fabio well from the season they had together at Real Madrid, and he knows what is required of him to get back into the squad.

"But what matters most to David is that he gets his 100th cap on merit. He doesn't want it to be meaningless or a token, because he feels he can still play for England until 2010."
