Coach Capello finally gets in touch with BecksBy ANI

LONDON - England coach Fabio Capello made contact with former national star David Beckham yesterday - and gave him a big hug at White Hart Lane.
Capello, it may be recalled, had last year claimed Becks was too old for international football, and cut him out of his plans in August before England’s 2-1 win over Hungary at Wembley.
When asked before that game if Beckham had an England future, Capello said: “No, I need to change it. David is a fantastic player, but I think we need new players for the future.”
Yesterday, according to The Sun, it seemed there were no hard feelings.
Perhaps Becks, 35, needs a grandfather figure to do some babysitting, with wife Posh expecting their fourth child. (ANI)
