NEW YORK (AP) – David Beckham plans to be an ambassador for England at the 2012 London Olympics, preferably as a player for his nation's soccer team.
Wayne Rooney isn't exactly known as an ambassador for his sport.
The Manchester United stars past and present will face off Wednesday in the MLS All-Star game.
The 36-year-old Beckham, now with the Los Angeles Galaxy and an MLS All-Star, hopes to compete for his home country at next year's Olympics in what could be one of the final chapters of his career.
The 25-year-old Rooney is the one scoring goals - and creating controversy - for Manchester United these days.
