England vs Switzerland: Ashley Young to Replace David Beckham?

I have already posted an entry on the news that England coach Fabio Capello showed his interest to David Beckham ahead of the friendly match against Switzerland. He even asked his staffs to confirm about the fitness of David Beckham. Beckham and his fans became happy with the news as it would be his 100th cap for England.

However, report has it that Aston Villa winger, Ashley Young could replace the former England captain. Aston Villa manager, Martin O'Neill has revealed it following Young’s impressive performance in their 1-1 draw against Blackburn Rovers. To him, Young has the potential to replace Beckham in the national side. Young is a quality free kick taker and he is now considered as a challenge for David Beckham, who is famous for his trade mark free kick.

Astonvilla reported:

The biggest word there was maybe 'when' as he didn't get enough of the ball and did get bullied out at times due to Blackburn playing with a five man midfield, although his free kick to save us a point was sublime and he so nearly repeated it at the end of the game with another curler, this time going just over. He certainly is a star in the making for Villa and I think that all those that questioned the price paid last January (over £9million) have now been well and truly answered. He was worth every penny and is now worth a good amount more.

David Beckham is now preparing with Arsenal for the friendly match against Switzerland. Beckham has earlier played under Capello in Real Madrid, before his move to L.A. Galaxy last year. It is also said that Beckham had to leave Real Madrid for Capello as Beckham hardly got chance in the starting line up of Capello in the last days in Real Madrid. So, there was a question mark if Capello would give him the chance to wear the England jersey for the 100th time in his career against Switzerland. There was a ray of hope when Capello showed interest about David Beckham, but now it seems that Beckham has to get over the challenges from the youngsters like Ashley Young in order to win his place in England side.
