After joining Paris Saint-Germain, David Beckham has put in some good performances for the French giants, and has even been linked with an England re-call.

Beckham hasn't been involved with England since March 2010, where he was an unused substitute in the friendly at Wembley against Egypt. Despite being overlooked by manager Roy Hodgson, the 37-year-old has refused to give up on his England career altogether.

In a interview with CNN World News, the former England captain said: "One of the reasons I've never retired from the England team is because if there is ever an opportunity to play for them again, then I'm available.

"If there is any chance of me ever playing for my country again, I would never turn that down. Like I said, I am nearly 38-years-old so the chances are very slight, but you never know."

Beckham has been one of England's best players over the years, making 115 appearances, scoring 17 goals. He has helped England out of many sticky situations in the past, the most memorable being the last-minute goal against Greece in 2001 which booked England's place in the 2002 World Cup finals.

Another unforgettable moment was during the 1998 World Cup where Beckham got sent off against Argentina in controversial circumstances.

In 2012, Beckham was one of the favourites to be picked for the Great Britain Olympic side, but head coach Stuart Pearce decided against giving the former Manchester United superstar a call-up.

After Beckham's Olympic omission, no-one had even thought about an international return, but now the global icon has mentioned it, and given his impressive performances in Ligue 1 with PSG, perhaps we could yet see Beckham in an England shirt once more?
