Fab: Becks, you're older than time :)

LONDON - Fabio Capello booted Oasis fan David Beckham's international career into touch - on TV. 

The England boss was asked if the Three Lions legend would be part of his plans for the Euro 2012 qualifiers. 

Capello replied: "I say thank you very much for helping me at the World Cup but he is probably, little bit old."

His comments - before England's 2-1 win over Hungary - ended one of greatest careers in the country's football history.

They were probably a shock to Beckham, 35, who is recovering from an achilles injury.

After the interview, ITV cut back to the the studio where match pundit, former England striker Les Ferdinand, said: "I'm not sure if he's spoken to David already.

"I would hate to think he (Beckham) is seeing that and thinking, 'well that's the end of my England career'.

A spokesman for Becks said: "There has been no discussion of retirement. He will always be available for his country, when fit and, if needed, he will be there."

Last night the flop World Cup players expecting a massive backlash from fans weren't booed as loudly as expected.

But they were jeered off after a goalless first half and striker Wayne Rooney felt the wrath of the fans when he was substituted after another goalless performance.

Capello revealed after the game that Beckham would be given one more chance to pull on the Three Lions shirt - most likely against france on November 17.

"He will play one friendly to say bye bye," Capello told reporters.

Injured Becks ended up being part of England's World Cup support team in South Africa because of the huge respect he commands from the top players.

He was regularly seen screaming at the squad from the dug out and gave half-time pep talks to the battered squad, whose appalling World Cup infuriated fans.

In an England career that has spanned almost 14 turbulent years, Becks collected 115 caps - the most ever for an outfield player, and just ten short of goalie Peter Shilton's all-time record.

He captained England at three major tournaments - the World Cups of 2002 and 2006, and Euro 2004. And despite tearfully handing back the armband in June 2006, he said he was still willing to continue as a player.

He was initially overlooked by Capello's predecessor, Steve McClaren, but was called back into the team almost a year into his reign.

When the Italian took over, he kept faith with the former AC Milan midfielder.

But this year his dream of playing in his fourth World Cup was shattered after he injured his Achilles tendon playing for AC Milan's in a 1-0 win over Chievo "Romeo&Juliet" :) Verona (as one of his sons, Romeo :).

His World Cup career got off to a shaky start when he was famously sent off for a petulant kick at Diego Simeone during the france 1998 last-16 clash with Argentina.

He was widely blamed afterwards for effectively costing England the match.

But Beckham - famed for his ever changing hairstyles - was to bounce back and become one of the country's great sporting ambassadors.

You know the feeling you get when you feel you're older than time...
I think for Beckham it went wrong when he decided to play in the Usa... in fact to play again for England he had to go on loan to AC Milan... so, come to play there again!
