Beckham Finally Recalled for England

David Beckham had recently stated that he would walk back from the United States to play for England, but now he will not have to.

The former England captain has been recalled by manager Steve McClaren for a friendly against Brazil on 1 June and the Euro 08 qualifier versus Estonia on 6 June.

Beckham leaves Real Madrid in a few weeks to begin his MLS career with LA Galaxy, but his recent outstanding run of form has earned a turnaround from McClaren.

Michael Owen will also be making his return to the England squad after injuring his knee at last summer's World Cup.

England Squad:

Goalkeepers: Paul Robinson, (Tottenham), Scott Carson (Liverpool), Robert Green (West Ham)

Defenders: Phil Neville (Everton), Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United), John Terry (Chelsea, captain), Wayne Bridge (Chelsea), Wes Brown (Manchester United), Jamie Carragher (Liverpool), Michael Dawson (Tottenham), Ledley King (Tottenham), Nicky Shorey (Reading)

Midfielders: David Beckham (Real Madrid), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Jermaine Jenas (Tottenham), Joe Cole (Chelsea), Aaron Lennon (Tottenham), David Bentley (Blackburn), Michael Carrick (Manchester United), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Stewart Downing (Middlesbrough), Kieron Dyer (Newcastle)
