Beckham to sit for start of Euro 2008 qualifier against Croatia

Hours after saluting David Beckham as one of the world's best right-sided midfielders, England coach Steve McClaren reportedly was preparing to bench the former Real Madrid and Manchester United star for Wednesday's European Championship qualifier against Croatia.

Several major English daily newspapers were reporting that the 32-year-old midfielder would be relegated to the bench after being selected for the England team for the first time since the 1998 World Cup.
