World Cup Countdown! Beckham’s Free Kick

We’re can’t wait for the the FIFA World Cup and to get even MORE excited, we’re taking you back to October 2001. England were playing Greece in a vital World Cup Qualifier and we needed a goal to win the group and qualify automatically ahead of Germany – but time was running out.

In the 92 minute England won a free kick 30 yards out and up stepped David Beckham. The rest is history!

He hit the ball with power and curl and it smashed into the top corner, dramatically securing England’s place at the 2002 World Cup!
