Beckham Wants to Captain England

England and Manchester United midfielder David Beckham claims it would be his "ultimate dream" to captain England. 

The performances of the midfielder were one of the few bright spots for England at Euro 2000, where Kevin Keegan's side failed to reach the quarterfinals. 

Beckham told the Sunday Mirror: "Just being part of the England set-up and playing for my country is an achievement to me. 

"I have a great deal of pride when I pull on an England shirt, but to captain my country would be the ultimate dream for me." 

Beckham, who has been hounded on away grounds after his sending-off against Argentina in France 1998, added: "I have always harbored dreams of captaining the teams I play for, be that Manchester United or England. I can think of no greater honor" - (AFP)
