After seeing one brave move pay off with David Beckham´s successful return to the international stage, England coach Steve McClaren is now set to recall another old-timer in Portsmouth defender Sol Campbell.

Like Beckham, Campbell´s England career ground to a halt after the 2006 World Cup. And McClaren has already pencilled in a trip to see Campbell, and fellow veteran David James, in action against Manchester United, seven days before the Germany encounter at Wembley on August 22.

"It would be silly and foolish of me to dismiss David James and Sol Campbell," said McClaren. "I never said I would do that and I have no intention of doing it and certainly, with the injuries we have, I am not dismissing the possibility of going to watch Portsmouth."
