David Beckham's England career appears to be over after coach Fabio Capello indicated the midfielder is too old.

Beckham has played 115 times for England, second behind only goalkeeper Peter Shilton's 125 from 1970-90.

The 35-year-old Beckham missed out on playing at a fourth World Cup after tearing an Achilles' tendon in March while on loan to AC Milan from the Galaxy and resumed training Wednesday in Los Angeles.

Capello told British broadcaster ITV that the former captain is "probably a bit too old" to play for England again.

The Italian coach added: "Thank you, David."
