Bless You Le Tissier

LONDON, () -- Manchester United's David Beckham received his first England call-up and Southampton's wayward maestro Matthew Le Tissier was recalled as new manager Glenn Hoddle named his first squad Thursday.


The two creative midfielders are included in the 22-strong party to face Moldova on September 1 in England's first qualifier for the 1998 World Cup.


With Arsenal players David Platt and Tony Adams both injured, Hoddle also recalled Newcastle's combative midfielder David Batty and Manchester United defender Gary Pallister.


Blackburn goalkeeper Tim Flowers loses his place to Liverpool's David James, while Manchester United youngster Phil Neville and Liverpool's Jamie Redknapp miss out through injury.
