David Beckham will lead England out as captain for the first time since the 2006 World Cup in Sunday's friendly against Trinidad and Tobago, the BBC reported on Saturday.

The 33-year-old Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder was dropped from the squad by former coach Steve McClaren having made a tearful World Cup exit, going off injured in the quarter-final loss to Portugal.

But McClaren's successor Fabio Capello has brought back his former Real Madrid colleague and he will lead the team out in Port of Spain on Sunday night as Capello mulls over John Terry or centreback partner Rio Ferdinand as his favoured long-term choices for the skipper's armband.
