    A classic moment when England captain David Beckham scores with a sensational 30-yard free kick, three minutes into injury-time.
    Because Germany only drew with Finland, the goal means England automatically qualified for the2002 World Cup finals.

    To irl wilson...what the commentator said was "Give that man a knighthood"....A knighthood in UK means a person can add the title "Sir" or "Dame" to their name.

    One of the greatest memories of my life. The way that the camera was shaking when he was celebrating shows that even the camera man was going nuts! Miss him so much in the England team, despite all the off-the-pitch lifestyle the guy was an amazing player and will always be in my greatest ever England 11. Cheers Dave, the whole of England loves you : )

    Great Freekick, No doubt, But The goalkeeper. what on earth was he doing, why would he step to his left when he knows the ball would curl in the other direction??!if he had just stepped to his right and jumped, he would of saved it, Possibly the worst attempt to save a freekick! Class Goal Though!!

    And again, you mean you are the one playing the video game, and it's just that. Try kicking a real ball around, it's more fun.
