David Beckham returned to face his Galaxy teammates in training on Monday for the first time since his much-publicized loan spell with AC Milan. However, his return has been over-shadowed after excerpts of Grant Wahl’s, ‘The Beckham Experiment’, became public. These excerpts largely focus on comments Landon Donovan made which heavily criticize the former England captain. I’m sure you’ve all read his comments, but in case you haven’t, you can find them here. And as a side-note, I’d advise against reading this book since it is completely one-sided and is clearly a ploy to stir controversy and make some money.

David Beckham is in contention for a starting place for England’s qualifier against Andorra on Wednesday. In doing so, he will reach 112 caps for England, cementing his spot as England’s most capped outfield player ever. Only the goaltender Peter Shilton holds more caps (125). However, if Becks is chosen by Capello to represent England in South Africa, he will undoubtedly break that record and become England’s most capped player of all-time. This accolade will go a long way to help silence the ‘boo boys’ who continue to criticize his every move both on and off the pitch.
