Beckham Looks to Continue for England

While the suddenly in-demand David Beckham looks to continue playing for the national side, pundits and fans alike have begun looking at future schedules and realizing Beckham will have to miss a lot of matches for LA Galaxy to remain in the England set-up.

Recent statements from both sides show that England will take priority over MLS.

When speaking of playing for the national team, Beckham makes no mention of scheduling conflicts and speaks only of his desire to remain in McClaren's squad.

LA Galaxy president Alexi Lalas seems in favor of Beckham's return to international glory, leading one to believe these details were worked out long before Beckham signed with the MLS club.

Yesterday, Beckham himself seemed to make everyone's speculation rather unnecessary, stating, "LA Galaxy will do everything possible to keep me playing for my country."
