Beckham breaks Moore's record

March 29, 2009 07:04 IST

David Beckham became England's most capped outfield player when he won his 109th cap as a halftime substitute in the friendly against Slovakia at Wembley on Saturday.

Beckham, 33, beat the previous record of 108 caps he shared with the late Bobby Moore, England's 1966 World Cup-winning captain.

He also became his country's second-most capped player of all time with only goalkeeper Peter Shilton, on 125, making more appearances for England.
