NEW YORK - David Beckham plans to be an ambassador for England at the 2012 London Olympics, preferably as a player for his nation's football team.

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney is the one scoring goals - and creating controversy - in England these days.

The Manchester United stars of past and present will meet Wednesday in the Major League Soccer 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.
