Fabio Capello believes that David Beckham could continue playing for England right through to the 2010 World Cup.
Fabio Capello is beginning to settle into his new role as England head coach. The Italian manger is now comfortable with his English, although not to the extent that he will talk to the press in English, and he is impressed with Premier League football.
Capello also suggested that Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder David Beckham, who will be 35 years old when the 2010 World Cup kicks off in South Africa is a possibility for England. Capello managed Beckham at Real Madrid and insists that it depends on whether Beckham can maintain his fitness levels.
He played in the last game, he did well against France, and I sometimes go to see him in Los Angeles. It depends, there are players who at 33, or 34 take good care of themselves, they understand that the body is not as it was and they take more care. It depends a lot on that.
