You have to consider the balance of the team, I don’t think he could come back and play in the team, no, but he deserves to be around it, he could offer a valuable presence to the younger members of the team. Has Gerard utilised that right flank well? I would say yes, the wings have been far more better since the inclusion of pace, and that’s what England need. Have the free kicks been dramatically worse? I’d say no, Owen Hargraves, Rooney, Gerrard and Lampard are all capable to striking good free kicks, granted not with the curve of Beckham, but if that is all he has to offer, he might as well sit down for half of the game. As much as I love Beckham, I’d say a big no to bringing him back. He won’t be around for 2010 World Cup and that’s what we have to focus gearing the team towards.
