Beckham sets England appearance record

Per the Associated Press, David Beckham made history Saturday by competing in his 109th match for England in a 4-0 win over Slovakia. Beckham now holds the English record for appearances by a non-goalkeeper and looks to break the all-time record held by goalkeeper Peter Shilton at 125 appearances.

Twitterers in the United Kingdom quickly reacted to the news.
