John Motson commentator Talking about the free-kick that day, I still can’t believe that the ball will roll to the bottom of the net. But at that moment, the mood was extremely turbulent.

         “Beckham… Yes! Yes! Done, David Beckham! Excellent! 2-2 and England are still going to the World Cup.” An excited voice came through the BBC as everyone jumped in joy.

         “It’s a natural occurrence, it’s not 100 per cent that England will automatically qualify in Japan and South Korea when Beckham scores because Germany also plays against Finland at Gelsenkirchen.”
