David Beckham´s participation in next month´s ´Match against Poverty´ will hinge on whether the Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder earns an England recall.

The 32-year-old has been invited by former Real Madrid team-mates Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo to take part at the Roseleda Stadium in Malaga on November 19. The match would be Beckham´s first in Spain since leaving Real, but he refuses to confirm his attendance as yet in case Steve McClaren names him in the England squad for the Euro 2008 qualifier against Croatia on November 21.

Beckham´s advisor Simon Olivera told PA Sport: "We haven´t committed to anything at this stage. David is keen to play in Spain for charity, but the game is only two days before England´s match with Croatia, which would rule him out. A decision will be made nearer the time."
