LA Galaxy star David Beckham has confirmed that he will be a part of the England squad at the upcoming World Cup.
Despite being injured and forced out of the playing side of things, the 34-year old midfielder has been invited by national team manager Fabio Capello to join the touring party to go to South Africa.
Beckham said in a TV show that : “I won’t be playing, but as a supporter and part of the team, the manager’s invited me,”.
“I haven’t spoken to him about details but it will be about how my leg will be.”
Beckham will not take any part in the World Cup due to a ruptured Achilles he sustained whilst playing for AC Milan when on loan from the Galaxy in March and said the injury could have come as he strived to push for selection for the Three Lions.
