David Beckham's hectic prospective schedule has had a friendly against Sydney FC on 27 November added to it.

Former Real Madrid midfielder Beckham, 32, is set to turn out for both England and new American club LA Galaxy in a testing programme of matches.

The game Down Under will be played only six days after England face Croatia in their final Euro 2008 qualifier.

Football Federation Australia (FFA) have guaranteed Beckham will play at least some part in the friendly.

He will be officially unveiled by LA Galaxy on 13 July.

His appearance in Australia will coincide with the Asian Football Confederation's (AFC) annual awards, which take place in Sydney on 28 November.

"We've got certain guarantees in place that he will be playing," confirmed FFA chief executive Ben Buckley.

"If David happens to get injured or feels ill, the match can be postponed to a later date."
