David Beckham is likely to make his 108th appearance for England this week after being recalled to the national football squad.

Beckham, who turns 34 in May, will equal Bobby Moore's record number of caps if he plays in a friendly match against Spain in Seville on Wednesday.

England coach Fabio Capello says he's impressed by Beckham's fitness since he joined AC Milan. He says Beckham is getting better and better with each game.

Beckham is on loan from Los Angeles Galaxy to the Serie A club until 9 March. He now wants to stay in Italy permanently.
