Beckham hoping for England return

By 12 September 2010 12:30

David Beckham has targeted a return for England after coming back from injury to play for Los Angeles Galaxy overnight.

The former Manchester Untied and Real Madrid player also admitted he feared his playing days were over after snapping his Achilles while on loan for AC Milan in March.

"I'd like to be available to play for England," Beckham told Sky Sports News.

"If I'm fit then I'm sure the (England) manager will consider me."

Beckham also revealed his initial reaction was to question if he would recover from the injury.

"As positive a person as I am when I did the injury there are doubts that go through your mind. 'Am I ever going to play again?'

"Being back out there and being fit again and with the team it makes it sweet.

"When you have a serious injury like this it does cross your mind."
