Becks Aiming for 2010

During an interview with reporters, David Beckham revealed that he plans to keep fighting for his England place long after he reaches 100 caps for England against France on Wednesday night. "I never thought a year or two ago that I would make 95 caps, never mind 100," the Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder said. "I'm honored that I'm making, hopefully, my 100th appearance in an England shirt but I'm also honored to be doing it against one of the best teams in the world. But as much as I'm honored to be here I want it to carry on. It doesn't stop here for me. It's not about 'have your 100th game and then retire'. It's about carrying on trying to play well for my country."

Beckham's recall to the England squad follows a month of good form in a series of friendlies for the L.A. Galaxy, his club since July of last year. The former England captain was overlooked by England manager Fabio Capello during last month's friendly against Switzerland because he had not played a competitive match since November.

Beckham revealed that he hopes to be part of England's World Cup qualifying campaign, which begins after this summer's European Championships. "I would love to play and be part of the squad in 2010," he said, "but I'm taking it as it comes -- who knows what is round the corner? The combination of the players and the combination of manager and staff is setting us up right for the qualification games for the World Cup."
