Capello: Fit Beckham will make squad

England coach Fabio Capello has revealed David Beckham will definitely be in his World Cup squad if he remains fit during his second loan spell at AC Milan.

Beckham has returned to Milan until the end of the season in a bid to retain his England place and add to his 115 caps - an England record for an outfield player. And Capello insists that if the Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder impresses as much as he did during his first loan spell last year then he will be on the plane to South Africa.

''Of course, if he plays well and is fit I will include him in my squad,'' Capello told Gazzetta dello Sport. ''I don't look at age, I pay attention to quality and David has a lot. He's serious, he's a great professional and he's crazy about the World Cup.''

It came as something of a surprise when Beckham moved on loan to Milan last season initially until March. But the former England captain impressed so much the deal was extended until the end of the season and Capello is confident Beckham will once again shine in Serie A.

He added: ''He will again do good for Milan because he has the right head on his shoulders.''
