David Beckham: My World Cup Place Is Not Assured

Former England skipper fearful he will not go to South Africa

AC Milan midfielder David Beckham is fearful that he might not be chosen to represent England at this summer’s World Cup.

Beckham recently returned to Old Trafford in Milan’s 4-0 thrashing at the hands of his former club, Manchester United in the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie, and the former captain of the Three Lions is afraid he might not make it a onto England’s final squad..

“I am not guaranteed to go to South Africa at all,” he told the Daily Mail.

“I'm going to have to work hard and hopefully win my place. There are a good few months left.”

If Beckham goes to South Africa he would become the first player in the country’s history to go to four straight World Cups, beating Bobby Moore and Peter Shilton who both went to three in a row.

Beckham has had a tough history at the World Cup, getting sent-off in a Round of 16 penalty shoot-out defeat against Argentina in 1998, and two successive quarter-final eliminations at the hands of Brazil and Portugal.
