Real Madrid’s Beckham: I’m always available for England

He said: “I have always said while I am still playing, I am always available.

“But I will also say that if I never play for my country ever again, I have lived my boyhood dream.

“To play for England was one of the biggest honours I had in my career.

“The biggest honour was to be given the captain’s armband. Giving that up was very difficult and not being in the team is also difficult.”
