Beckham - The Indispensable force of England
Today, when we think about England, we basically have to name the talented David Beckham. It is very unfortunate what
happened to Beckham. It is unfortunate because fans from all over the world want to see the great Beckham against
Argentina in Korea-Japan. Without Beckham in the World Cup, we can easily say that the World Cup will miss one of its top
entertainers. We hope that the British superstar will recover quickly so he will be able to entertain us this summer, and
we hope that no players will have these sorts of injuries. However, it is quite difficult to ask players to play in a reserve
manner since they are professionals and great competitors. They are great competitors because they want to give their best
to their team and they want to make sure that the fans do enjoy the games. As fans, we must remember that these players are
Beckham is in danger of not making the World Cup, but something tells me that he will be there in time. England must have
Beckham since he is the inspirational leader for the national team. His determination and charisma are second to none and he
has demonstrated these qualities over and over again on the soccer pitch. It is a joy to see him play, and we pray that he will
have a quick recovery to defend the land of the late queenmother in the world’s biggest tournament.
Great players such as Beckham, Veron, Zidane, Figo, Batistuta, Raul and many more cannot miss this World Cup. We are all awaiting to see these
talented players facing eachother in June. We are all awaiting to see these world battles in a sport that brings joy to all over
the world. Many fans will wear their favorite superstar jersey, and we expect to see some of them with the #7 jersey worn by
the great David Beckham, a majestic player that can change the outcome of a game at any given time.
We hope that Beckham will be there; we hope that he has a chance to drive England to the ultimate prize as he is ready to
take on David Simeone of Argentina. Ironically, both players have been injured this year; again, it was an Argentine,
Duscher, who caused Beckham’s injury. It is not appropriate to blame the Argentine for what had happened since he had no
intentions of injuring Beckham. These things do happen during the course of the game, and we hope that the players will play
in a manner to prevent these injuries. Again it is quite difficult to ask a player to play conservatively in a game where the
stakes are very high.
We are awaiting to see Beckham in this World Cup. He will make it on time since he is a fighter. He can overcome this injury
like he has done it in the past. The support from fans all over the world is with him during this difficult time; and that alone
will give him the strength needed to come out and defend with pride the colors of the majestic land of Queen Elizabeth.
Beckham, We are with you!
