The Soccer legend was the National Side captain but was sent off in the World cup in the year 1998 which was held in France in the last-16- exit to rivals Argentina. But he got a chance to write his wrongs by scoring a penalty against Argentina during the 2002 World cup.
Beckham has high hopes with the current England squad and says they are destined to meet their old rivals once again in this years’ World Cup in Russia.
“I believe Argentina will play against England in the final,” Beckham predicted at an event to promote China’s largest collegiate football league.
“I think obviously my choice would be England to win the competition, but that’s me being biased and passionate about my country.”
Beckham was speaking after England won their opening Group G game against Tunisia on Monday thanks to a late Harry Kane winner.
Gareth Southgate’s side face Panama on Sunday before a fixture against Belgium next week.
“I’m very happy that we won the first game in the group,” said Beckham.
“England is a very young team, they don’t have a lot of experience yet and the journey of the World Cup will become harder and harder because there are many good teams in the tournament.”
