Beckham poised to equal Moore milestone

David Beckham has been named in Fabio Capello's England squad for next Wednesday's friendly against Spain in Seville.

Should he feature in Sevilla's Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium, the LA Galaxy midfielder - currently on loan at AC Milan - will make a record-equalling 108th appearance for England, matching 1966 World Cup-winning captain Bobby Moore's milestone for an outfield player.

West Ham striker Carlton Cole and Aston Villa midfielder James Milner have also earned call-ups and will win their first international caps should they play.

Milner is one of six Villa players included in Capello's squad.


Goalkeepers: Green (West Ham), Hart (Man City), James (Portsmouth).

Defenders: Bridge (Man City), Terry (Chelsea), A Cole (Chelsea), R Ferdinand (Man United), Jagielka (Everton), G Johnson (Portsmouth), Upson (West Ham), L Young (Villa).

Midfielders: Beckham (LA Galaxy), Carrick (Man United), Downing (Middlesbrough), Lampard (Chelsea), Wright-Phillips (Man City), A Young (Villa), Barry (Villa), Milner (Villa).

Forwards: Agbonlahor (Villa), Heskey (Villa) C Cole (West Ham), Crouch (Portsmouth).
