Former England midfielder David Beckham has said that he is extremely confident that the team can achieve a lot of success at the Euro 2012.
Unlike the previous major competitions, England go into the Euro 2012 not as their favourite team to win the competition. Many have been predicting that this will be the season England finally bring back an international trophy.
The former England midfielder David Beckham has said that England can aim for Euro 2012 success if they successfully reached the final stages of the competition. England are in the group containing France and Ukraine, who are likely to be the major threats, while Sweden will also pose a lot of questions.
England started their Euro 2012 campaign with a 1-1 draw with France, which was then followed by a thrilling 3-2 win over Sweden. They have demonstrated both sets of their game in these two matches according to David Beckham. The 37-year-old is currently playing for MLS club LA Galaxy after he signed a new two-year contract in the summer. He was widely expected to return to Europe with French club PSG, but that move fell through the last minute. England will be taking on Ukraine in the final group match.
“We’ve a great goalkeeper and a talented back four. Then when you have also got the likes of [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain, [Theo] Walcott, [James] Milner, [Steven] Gerrard, [Scott] Parker and [Danny] Welbeck, that’s a dangerous group going forward and more dangerous than a lot of the teams I’ve seen in the competition so far. If we get a good result against Ukraine, I don’t see why we can’t go all the way. Hopefully, we can continue to play the way that we have so far,” Beckham told reporters ahead of the match with Ukraine.
