YARM (England): David Beckham was recalled to the England squad on Friday for what could be Steve McClaren’s last games as England coach.

The Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder sprained his right knee in August and missed England’s 3-0 victories against Israel and Russia at Wembley in September.

The former England captain also was out for England’s 2-1 defeat in Russia last month, which leaves qualification for the 2008 European Championship out of McClaren’s hands.

The final Group E match against Croatia on Nov. 21 could be meaningless unless Russia fails to win in Israel five days earlier. — AP
