Becks back in the England squad

This says more about the dire straits of the English squad under Steve McLaren than any substantial change in tactics or vision. Remember how McLaren was going to set England down a different path from the Svennie days. It’s Sven all over again except he looks a lot beefier and red faced.
David Bentley should get first squad action over Beckham. He has speed, runs wide, stretches out the defense, and is getting more judicious with his crosses down the right. Plus, he has a future. He was in impressive form providing two assists in England’s B squad recent win over Albania.
Becks recall is a return to the piecemeal approach that has killed English football in recent years.

  1. since becks left man utd, there has been noone even close to his free kick taking ability. and i venture to say the national team has the same problem. england played like shit against ecuador in the WC and it was becks that won that game for them, one free kick and GOAL. i thought it poetic justice after all the grief he got.

  2. I disagree. Beckham’s recall to the England squad has everthing to do with his improved play and the fact that England needs a spark and a confidence booster. Even Ruud said that Becks is currently in top form. It is time to bring the Captain back. Becks should have never been taken off to begin with.
