Beckham back on the pitch, in the headlines



David Beckham's return to the Los Angeles Galaxy practice pitch has coincided with word from England that his competitive international career appears to be over.

After England's come-from-behind, 2-1 friendly victory over Hungary on Wednesday, manager Fabio Capello said that he'd love to give Beckham a farewell match at an upcoming friendly but that he would not be calling on him for a future competitive match.

Beckham returned to practice in Los Angeles earlier than expected and is still hopeful of featuring for the first-place Galaxy this season as he finishes recovering from an Achilles injury. His representative, Simon Oliveira, released a statement in response to Capello's comments, saying that Beckham "will always be available for his country."

Meanwhile, West Ham co-chairman David Gold has expressed that his London-based club has extended an open invitation for Beckham to join the Premier League side either on loan or as a club ambassador.

What do you make of Capello's comments? Surprised to see Beckham practicing this soon? Do you think a fit Beckham makes the Galaxy a sure-thing for MLS Cup? Could you see Beckham suiting up for West Ham?
