David Beckham must be ruing his untimely prediction made yesterday – a potential England vs Argentina final at the 2018 World Cup, now under way in Russia.
The same night Lionel Messi-led Argentina were given a 0-3 hammering by Croatia, leaving them tottering on the edge, staring at an elimination at the very stage of the Cup!
Only an unlikely miracle can now make Beckham’s projection crystallise! Like the penalty that Messi missed in Argentina’s match against Iceland.
If he tried to play Paul the Octopus, known for accurate World Cup predictions in the recent past, no one will place his bets on it.
Beckham and Messi have one thing in common – tattoos all over! Most football stars have tattoos littered all over them, this appears to be a misjudgement from Beckham?!
One of the bright spots of Beckham’s career was his goal from the spot that helped England beat Argentina in a 2002 World Cup match.
