Beckham hopeful over future

David Beckham remains hopeful his impending move to LA Galaxy will not spell the end of his England career.
The former captain returned to competitive action for the first time since last summer's World Cup and took centre stage in England's 3-0 Euro 2008 qualifying victory over Estonia in Tallinn.
Beckham claimed two assists to add to the goal he made in Friday's 1-1 friendly draw with Brazil at Wembley to prove his worth to coach Steve McClaren.
And the Real Madrid midfielder is hopeful he can reach the 100-cap milestone in the coming months despite his move to America.
"I'd love to be in the next squad and Steve (McClaren) has made that clear - if I'm performing and playing like I've been playing recently I'll be in the squad," he said.
"Of course there's always pressure about staying in the team and winning your position - but am I on trial? I'm not sure about that.
"I always enjoy playing for my country and I've enjoyed the last couple of weeks, so let's see what happens.
"It's been nice to get back with the lads. There's a great atmosphere in team.
"Hopefully we've put ourselves in a better position now but we need to carry on playing."
