''Impeccable'' Beckham to face Roma in Milan debut

Short-term loan signing David Beckham is in excellent shape and could make his Serie A debut in AC Milan's first league match after the winter break at AS Roma next week, coach Carlo Ancelotti said on Saturday.

''He is impeccable in training. Physically he is well, he just lacks a little power,'' Ancelotti was quoted as saying at Milan's training camp in Dubai by La Gazzetta dello Sport's website.

''He will definitely be on the field in the (friendly) test against Hamburg (on Tuesday) and he may even be ready for Roma.''

Beckham has joined Milan on loan from Los Angeles Galaxy to keep up his fitness during the United States close season and stay in contention for an England squad place.

The midfielder scored an own goal in a practice game on Saturday, media reported.
