Beckham still dreams of bringing World Cup to England

Posted By: Staff

London, May 14 (ANI):In an article for the BBC, football star David Beckham has said that it has always been a dream of his to bring the World Cup to England.

"I dreamed as a schoolboy of playing in a World Cup finals. I have been lucky enough to enjoy that experience and I hope I can again this summer. I dreamed as well of seeing a World Cup tournament played in England - and together we have a chance to make that happen in 2018," Beckham says.We also have the chance to host the World Cup in our own country if we can get everyone to support it. The people who will decide who gets to hold the tournament will want to see that support. So my message to England fans everywhere is, please support us and really get behind the team in South Africa, but also get behind the 2018 bid," he adds.

"I might not make it as a player to the 2018 World Cup, but whether it's as a player, a pundit or a fan, I'll take any opportunity to be there - and I want it to be in England," eckham said. (ANI)
