Beckham not in Capello plans

England manager Fabio Capello says he has no intention of selecting former captain David Beckham in his squad.

Beckham missed out on the Italian's 2010 World Cup team because of an Achilles injury but did fly out to South Africa in an off-field role.

The LA Galaxy midfielder said last week he still has desires of representing his country, but he may have to wait until Capello leaves after Euro 2012, and at the age of 36 that could limit future opportunities.

When Capello was asked about Beckham being part of his off-field setup or being selected for Euro 2012, he told Sky Sports News: "No, I think he will only be involved in the Olympic Games. I don't know. I have time to decide. Is he in my plans now? No."

The 36-year-old Beckham has won 116 international caps with his last appearance coming in a win against Belarus in late 2009.

He is, however, expected to be part of Great Britain's squad for next year's Olympic Games in London.
