Read on...England manager Fabio Capello has confirmed that David Beckham will win his 100th international cap against France on Wednesday.
The former captain missed Capello's first match as coach against Switzerland last month due to concerns over the Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder's sharpness.
But he has been recalled for the friendly with France in Paris and is set to become the fifth player to reach a century of appearances for England.
Asked whether Beckham, 32, will start the game, Capello told Sky Sports News: "I've yet to decide, though I have made my decision.
I havn't seen him play for LA Galaxy, but last time I did see him, he wasn't a bad player. If the manager uses him right, he can be crucial to any team.
