Former England captain David Beckham says he will never give up hope of a recall
David Beckham has revealed he has not given up hope of playing for England again.
The former England captain is preparing to face Barcelona in the quarter finals of the Champions League on Tuesday, having recently returned to European football with Paris St Germain.
He is with the French outfit until the end of the season, with indications that his stay at the Parc des Princes may be extended further.
And Beckham has admitted he would rush to his country's aid if Three Lions Manager Roy Hodgson decided he could still do a job for the national team again.
Beckham told CNN World Sport: "One of the reasons why I've never retired from the England team is because if there's ever an opportunity to play for them again, then I'm available.
"If there is any chance of me ever playing for my country again, I would never turn that down.
“Like I said, I'm almost 38-years-old so the chances are very slight, but you never know."
Beckham has 115 England caps – more than any other outfield player in the team's history – but has not featured since October 2009.
