Beckham, on the other hand, played 90 minutes against Germany, is 32 years old, and is carrying a months-old ankle injury. Are you kidding me?
Let’s do some math:
"I'm Steve McClaren and I'm the biggest tool in the world"
LONDON (AFP) - "It would have been daft for us not to bring David over," said McClaren."He needed a full 90 minutes, especially at this level. It was good preparation for the (Euro 2008) games against Israel and Russia in two weeks' time. "We wanted to expose him to that quality pace of game and he also created chances for us."
In addition, Galaxy general manager Alexi Lalas has expressed concern about the amount of miles Beckham will be required to travel over the next few months as he combines his commitments to both club and country. Another game has now been added to the schedule following confirmation England will tackle European Championship co-hosts Austria in a friendly in Vienna on November 16. While that trip will not impact on Beckham too much given the Major League Soccer season ends in October, there are concerns about the 32-year-old's well-being. Given England are facing five crucial qualifiers over the next three months which will determine whether they reach next summer's finals, Wednesday's friendly was one Beckham might have missed, especially given his fitness levels and the fact he was also due to play the following night.
Way to go McClaren, Beckham is one of the top footballers in the world, but I don't think he can even save your job. Maybe you shouldn't have cut him off of the England national squad after the World Cup you f*ck face. You will not qualify for Euro 2008 and you will lose your job because you have made some horrible decisions while staying one of the biggest tools involved in football. Thanks.I hope I am not right about England not qualifying, by the way, I want them to.
