Beckham gets World Cup boost up from coach Capello

Posted By: Staff

London, Sep 11 (ANI): England midfielder David Beckham has been given a massive World Cup boost by coach Fabio Capello.

Capello said: "Beckham is always with us because, for me, he is an important player. He is good in the group and is good at every moment in training."

"The problem with Ledley King is his knee. We must choose the best players and the fittest because in the past England have taken injured players," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

Capello is also keeping tabs on the recovery of Owen Hargreaves and Joe Cole from long-term knee injuries.

"Manchester United's doctor said Hargreaves he will be back in two months. But then he has to play. I don't know if he will be ready," the England boss said.

"Cole told me he would be ready in the next five weeks. He is one more important player for us and I hope he will be ready quickly," Capello added. (ANI)
