W.O.R.K. It Out

David Beckham received the good news that he has been recalled to join the English national soccer team to participate in a friendly match against the French national team giving him the chance at winning his 100th cap with the team (a feat that he has eluded him thus far). It's not quite a done deal yet (he still has to survive some trimming on the team) but it seems likely that he will get this chance to earn his 100th cap. Around the time that Becks received this good news, he was at Gotham Hall in New York for the MLS W.O.R.K.S. and the U.S. Soccer Foundation's Gala Benefit to Celebrate the Sport of Soccer in the US where he presented a lifetime achievement award to soccer legend Pele. Here are a few pics of Becks at the Youth Soccer benefit:

David Beckham will have a chance to claim his 100th England cap after being named today in the provisional squad to face France next Wednesday. Fabio Capello listed his initial 30-man squad and Beckham, who missed out in the Italian's first game in charge against Switzerland last month, has been included after edging back to match fitness with his team LA Galaxy. Capello's assistant, Franco Baldini, was impressed after travelling to Dallas to talk with Galaxy coach Ruud Gullit last week. Beckham received the news after presenting a lifetime achievement award to Pele a fundraiser in New York to benefit Harlem Youth Soccer. Arriving at Gotham Hall with a GI haircut seemingly borrowed from Jake Gyllenhaal's character in Iraq war movie Jarhead, the former England captain said: "For me to be here to present this to the greatest sportsman of all time, I feel particularly honoured. This absolutely is a highlight moment for me." If he picks up his century of caps against France after being marooned on 99, the game will also rank as a major moment in the player's career - even though the game is only a friendly. First though, the 33-year-old has to survive the trimming of the squad, which will be cut to 23 after the weekend games. Beckham, who temporarily fell out with Capello when the two were at Real Madrid, cannot be guaranteed his place. However, it seems likely he will want to put the fuss of Beckham's 100 caps behind him without the pressure of having to win a competitive fixture. Becks dined at Nobu in New York before his appointment, but wife Victoria sat the trip out - she was last spotted sneaking into a taping of America Idol with her three sons in tow in LA on Tuesday night.

Despite the fact that Becks says he wants "no cap favors", I think it's pretty likely that he's gonna get his cap favor so that he can finally reach the milestone he's wanted for so long. [Source]

And so, to celebrate this big opportunity, David Beckham took his fine ass (all swankified in a sharp-lookin' suit) out for a celebratory dinner at Nobu:

I'm encouraged that Becks was able to prove his fitness to the England coach ... this should mean that after Becksie flies off to Europe to get this 100th cap he can fly back home to LA and play some serious soccer for the LA Galaxy. I really hope this season is better than last season ... if Becks comes back from Europe with another injured ankle I might have to go ballistic. He sure is purdy, tho. I'd have a hard time staying mad at him for long. [Source]
