[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
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 defender Leighton Baines
, who scored in Saturday's 2-1 loss at Portsmouth.
