Former England captain David Beckham believes that a winter World Cup could benefit the team as he praised the players for being more than just footballers. Beckham has 115 caps to his name while scoring 17 goals in the process with only Wayne Rooney and Peter Shilton earning more caps for England. He took part in three World Cups – 1998,2002 and 2006 and admitted that the team was exhausted after the season.

“For our team, I feel it [a World Cup in winter] is a huge opportunity. We never did use it [fatigue] as an excuse but, truth be told, we came to the end of a grueling season in the Premier League, the toughest league in the world, and you are tired and you do want a rest, you don’t have that time to recover from a tough season,” David Beckham said about England’s chances at the World Cup. “These players are coming into this tournament at a time when they are at their peak; they have had their rest, they are in the middle of the season, and there is no reason or excuse for them not to be at the top of their games and at the top of their fitness.”

“For our players, this is a real opportunity. We have a young team, an exciting team, a manager that has been with these players for a long time,” he added. “I really love watching this England team play; they’re exciting, they play with passion, they play like they want to be there, something you want to see as an England fan. For a moment there was a disconnect but, all of a sudden, our fans have come behind this team again, there is a connection, and Gareth has done an incredible job with that.”
