David Beckham will continue to excel for England even after he moves to Los Angeles Galaxy, according to Real Madrid team-mate Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Galaxy coach Alexi Lalas has given a lukewarm reception to the news of Beckham´s recall to the England squad, prompting forecasts of a club versus country row when the 32-year-old moves to California.

But van Nistelrooy, who admitted he would like Beckham to stay at Madrid, told the Daily Mirror: "I think he can still play for England even after he has moved to the States. He could continue at this level for a lot of years."
