Beckham happy with bench role for England

David Beckham insists he is happy to play a minor role for England in their attempts to qualify for the 2010 World Cup.

Beckham has 105 caps to his name but has found his place under threat from a host of younger right-sided players, not least Arsenal teenager Theo Walcott who scored a hat-trick against Croatia in Beckham's place in Zagreb.

Still, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid man is ready and willing to do anything in his power to help manager Fabio Capello - even if it means warming the bench.

Beckham said: ''I want to be part of the squad, part of these qualifiers and, hopefully, part of the team to the World Cup.

''If that means me coming on as sub or just even part of the squad, then I would be happy with that. I don't care whether I play or whether I don't.

''Of course I love to play for England but the much bigger thing is England winning and England qualifying.''

He continued: ''Whether I play is immaterial - it's about the team, about the squad. If I can carry on getting caps, getting on the field and helping the team in any way then I'll be happy.

''I would be happy going home having not even got off the bench. I'm in the squad, in the manager's mind and I'm there to support the team. I'm an England fan.''
