Beckham admits lack of fitness
David Beckham says he's still not fit enough to return to international duties in what would be his 100th appearance for England.
"I would love to reach the hundred caps, but I have to be physically ready to be part of the team," Beckham told a media conference yesterday in Seoul. "All I've done is training, so I have no much fitness."
Former England captain Beckham was denied his 100th national team appearance last month by new England coach Fabio Capello, who thought the midfielder lacked form as he had not played a competitive match since November.
Copa Libertadores
Dario Buttinelli's 30th-minute goal gave Chile's Universidad La Catolica all it needed to beat Peruvian club Universidad de San Martin in Copa Libertadores Group 5 on Tuesday.
Catolica's strong defense kept the local team subdued, despite several close calls at Monumental Stadium before 20,000 fans.
Catolica will next face River Plate in Santiago on March 12, and San Martin will play America in Mexico City on March 13.
Pot possession
New England Patriots running back Kevin Faulk was issued a misdemeanor summons last Friday for possession of marijuana.
Captain John Babin of the Lafayette Metro Narcotics Task Force confirmed the summons.
Faulk, a Louisiana native and former LSU star, was on his way to a suite in the Lafayette Cajundome to watch a performance by rapper Lil Wayne, when a routine search by a sheriff's deputy turned up four marijuana cigarettes, Babin said.
