If Beckham rejoins England, will it kill all MLS rumors?

With his country suddenly remembering his time with the national team fondly, could a call up to his old squad kill all talk of David Beckham coming to America?

Today Beckham said 'I still believe I have a part to play' in the English team, opening the door for an invite from new head coach Steve McClaren. If such an invite came, would it stop all the 'past his prime' talk, which has lead to the speculation of him 'cashing in' on a few final years in the USA?

I don't have the answer, but it would seem odd for a current member of the English national team to play in the MLS. Even without a call up, chances of Becks playing in the US in 2007 are not so great, and I can't see them get better with a return to international glory.

England play a friendly against the Netherlands on Nov. 15.

If he rejoins England (which he should), that pretty much rules him out through Euro 2008.
