The other day, I commented on David Beckham’s return from the wilderness, and the immediate dividends he paid his soccer club, Real Madrid, by scoring a goal and setting up the other in a 2-1 victory. But that was nothing compared to his contribution yesterday to Real Madrid’s huge 3-2 victory in a Champion’s League match against perennial powerhouse Bayern Munich. Beckham helped create all three Madrid goals, and was named man-of-the match notwithstanding the impressive array stars who participated (e.g. reigning footballer of the year Cannavaro, Raul (who scored twice), Van Nistelrooy, Casillas, Kahn, Makaay).
Meanwhile, England manager Steve McClaren, who booted Beckham off the national team upon taking it over this summer, is suggesting that he too may grant Beckham a return. In March, the struggling England team will face what essentially are must-win matches in its quest to qualify for Euro-2008. Bringing Beckham back seems like a no-brainer to me.
