Beckham wins 108th cap but Spain beat England 2-0

David Beckham equalled Bobby Moore's record of 108 England caps tonight when he came on at half time against Spain in Seville, but the European Champions rained on the parade by beating Fabio Capello's team 2-0.

The Italian fielded an experimental first XI with Michael Carrick, Phil Jagielka and Gabriel Agbonlahor all starting. But it was Spain who went ahead through David Villa who gave Jagielka the run around before slotting a cool finish past David James in the England goal.

The second-half saw Carlton Cole make his England debut as well as Beckham notching up his record equalling appearance. England struggled to break down a well marshalled Spanish defence despite Beckham's best efforts and the European Champions sealed the win when Llorente lost his marker to head home a Xavi free-kick.
