Madrid:England captain and Real Madrid star David Beckham has denied reports of an early retirement after the next World Cup. Beckham, who is playing for England in a friendly at Spain on Wednesday, denied the reports that he will quit if England did not qualify for the World Cup. Beckham has been out for a month with broken ribs, but he played the full 90 minutes against Albacete on Sunday in the Spanish League. He said it would be a dream to captain England to 2006 World Cup glory with a victory over hosts Germany in the final. Twenty nine-year-old Beckham has won the Champions League and several English Premiership titles with Manchester United, but has no major silverware in an England shirt.
