Steve McClaren’s England Benign Again, No Beckham Recall

October 7, 2006

england-soccer-ball.gifFor the second Euro 08 qualifying match in a row, Steve McClaren’s England were uninspired as they were drawn by Macedonia 0 – 0. The new-look England were unable to steal three points against Macedonia as they had last month.

The capacity crowd at Old Trafford had little to cheer about as the home side hit the post twice, but were unable to produce a winner.

Steve McClaren’s stubborn side seems to have taken hold, as he rebuffed speculation on a David Beckham recall.

When asked by a reporter whether he might recall the former England captain, McClaren replied “Not at the present moment. I haven’t even given it a thought.”

England top Group E on goal difference, even with Israel on seven points.
