Briefcase Bye bye Beckham.....

McClaren signals the end to Beckham's national service
By Matt Dickinson and George Caulkin
DAVID BECKHAM’S England career is almost certainly finished after Steve McClaren left the former captain out of his first international squad, to be named later today. Stranded on 94 caps, six short of the century he has longed to reach, Beckham has been exiled as McClaren makes a decisive and dramatic break from the Sven-Göran Eriksson era.

When he tearfully stood down from the captaincy the day after England’s exit from the World Cup finals, Beckham declared his wish to help McClaren and whoever would take up the armband, but the Real Madrid midfield player will be watching from home when John Terry — confirmed as the new skipper yesterday — leads his country out against Greece at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

BeckhamÂ’s last appearance ended when he limped off shortly after half-time during the quarter-final defeat to Portugal. He sat crying on the bench and, given how much he has loved playing for his country since making his debut under Glenn Hoddle nearly a decade ago, he will almost certainly have shed a few tears on discovering that McClaren sees no future for him in his new England team. Fitness is not an issue, Beckham having played for Real in a midweek friendly.
