Beckham aims to convince England
David Beckham
Beckham in action for LA Galaxy against FC Dallas
David Beckham was watched by Fabio Capello's right hand man Franco Baldini to assess his form and fitness ahead of England's friendly with France.

Beckham is hoping to earn his 100th cap in Paris on 26 March.

The 32-year-old played the full 90 minutes for LA Galaxy, in a 0-0 draw in a charity match against FC Dallas.

Beckham said: "Baldini came to see me. Some people might think that adds a little added pressure, but from my side, there was no added pressure."

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star added: "I just had to perform, play the balls I could play and work hard.

"That's just part and parcel for a player playing for his national team. You're always being watched by somebody. It just comes with the territory."

New England coach Capello has already said he was considering Beckham, after leaving him out of his first squad because of fitness concerns.

The Italian said: "There is a strong possibility that he will be selected."
