    Debham needs to be Selected

    Is that Beckham haha.

    Yes I agree, if only for the effort and success he has had in the past to be rewarded with his 100th cap and that milestone.

    many a time he was England's best player on the pitch.

    Whether or not he will be picked in competitive matches again I'm not sure at the moment. I think SWP is ahead of him in the pecking order for right wing

    • Some of our more serious contributors have said that caps should be awarded on merit, not because of who you are or what you did in the past. But his 99 caps were achieved on merit, and we will probably be short of a squad after today anyway.
      I think it's right that he gets a standing ovation. The treatment that he got from most of the country after France '98, and especially at places like Upton Park who have permanently gone down in my opinion ever since, was as severe as it gets, he deserves one last clap.
