[WORLD CUP 2010 QUALIFYING]David Beckham can break the England record for most games played by a field player if he plays in one of England's upcoming games -- a friendly against Slovakia on March 28 and a World Cup qualifier against Ukraine on April 1.

Beckham, whose play with AC Milan again earned him a spot in the England team, remains on loan from MLS's Los Angeles Galaxy through the Serie A season. He is tied with Bobby Moore with 108 international appearances. They trail only goalkeeper Peter Shilton (125 caps) among England players.

Beckham is the only foreign-based player in the 24-player England squad that includes one newcomer: Everton defenderLeighton Baines, who scored in Saturday's 2-1 loss at Portsmouth.

ENGLAND ROSTER:
Goalkeepers:Ben Foster (Manchester United), Robert Green (West Ham), David James (Portsmouth)
Defenders:Leighton Baines (Everton), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Glen Johnson (Portsmouth), Ledley King (Tottenham), Joleon Lescott (Everton), John Terry (Chelsea), Matthew Upson (West Ham)
Midfielders:David Beckham (AC Milan, Italy), Gareth Barry (Aston Villa), Michael Carrick (Manchester United), Stewart Downing (Middlesbrough), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Aaron Lennon (Tottenham), Shaun Wright-Phillips (Manchester City)
Forwards:Carlton Cole (West Ham), Peter Crouch (Portsmouth), Emile Heskey (Aston Villa), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United)
