Former England international David Beckham is regarded as one of the finest players to have represented the national team in the last few decades.

England legend David Beckham says that England have a chance of winning the World Cup 2014 despite many already having written off the hopes of winning the title because manager Roy Hodgson named a very young squad. Several experienced players like Michael Carrick and Ashley Cole have been left out of the squad, as the former Liverpool manager has tried to pick future stars like Luke Shaw and Ross Barkley in the team. Experience is one of the important aspects of a team trying to win the World Cup. Without this facet, England will struggle, according to many pundits.
Former Manchester United star David Beckham has stated that he expects Wayne Rooney to deliver at the World Cup 2014. There has been intense criticism of Rooney ahead of the start of the World Cup.

At 28 years of age, Rooney comes into the World Cup at the peak of his career. However, his former teammate Paul Scholes recently suggested that Rooney may be past his best.
