According to various reports, it seems that Mr. Steve McClaren who is currently coaching England national team, may bench Beckham for the Croatia game.
The motives are unknown but unless McClaren has something in his sleeve, this could be a big mistake that could cost England the Euro 2008 and certainly McClaren his job and his reputation.
Just a couple days ago, in a friendly game against Austria, it was off Beckham's cross that Peter Crouch was able to score the only goal of the game. With Michael Owen and Rooney being injured again, it is up to the tall striker, Peter Crouch to score goals.And who is better to send high crosses for this tall striker other than David Beckham?
After McClaren dropped Beckham after the world cup, he saw better that he could not get any result without him. That's why he invited him back to England national team. And he is about to make another mistake again by benching him. Unless he has some tactical tricks up his sleeve, I think is making a huge McClaren by Benching David Beckham.
