Beckham reproduces his stunning free kick to woo CapelloJanuary 29th, 2009 - 6:16 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 29 (ANI): English midfielder David Beckham produced his greatest game in years to wow coach Fabio Capello in order to earn a recall to the national side.
Beckham, 33, swung home a sensational free kick in the San Siro to cap an all-action display reminiscent of the heroic performance against Greece back in 2001.
England boss Capello must have been impressed in the stands and will surely recall Beckham for next months friendly with Spain.
Afterwards, Milan manager Carlo Ancelotti revealed it is entirely down to Beckham over where his future lies.
Ancelotti said: At this moment hes a Milan player. But we dont know if David wants to stay at AC Milan. Its not a case of Milan or LA Galaxy. It depends entirely on what David wants to do.
Beckham must have convinced Capello not only tonight but in all four games he has played. Hes been really good, he added.
Becks opened the scoring on 33 minutes, with a stunning free-kick from a tight angle.
Having pulled the strings in midfield, he limped off on 70 minutes to a standing ovation.
Genoas Diego Milito levelled late to dampen Beckhams night.
Beckham said: To score a goal for Milan at the San Siro made me very happy. But it was more important that we win. (ANI)
