MOST COMMENTED

Despite his injured ankle, the Los Angeles Galaxy's David Beckham aims to play in England's friendly against Germany on Wednesday (TV live: 3 pm ET Setanta pay-per-view; delay: 5 pm ET Fox Soccer Channel & Fox Sports en Espanol). "He trained this morning and looked very, very good," said England coach Steve McClaren on Tuesday. If Beckham plays, he'll earn his 97th cap.

The friendly at Wembley is preparation for England's crucial European Championship qualifiers against Israel and Russiain September.

Injuries have deprived England of Steven Gerrard, Owen Hargreaves and Wayne Rooney.

The Germans beat England 1-0 in the last match played at the old Wembley Stadium in October 2000 before it was demolished.

Germany enters the game without injured strikers Miroslav Klose, Mario Gomez and Lukas Podolski; midfielders Michael Ballack, Bastian Schweinsteiger, and Tim Borowski; and defender Marcell Jansen.
