England’s flailing attempt to secure the 2018 World Cup is to be boosted by the support of David Beckham when the draw is announced in Cape Town on December 4th.

Fifa vice-president Jack Warner sent a warning to the FA that their bid was “plodding along” and should involve personalities such as Beckham, who was instrumental in hos support for the 2012 Olympic bid.

“I was honoured to be involved in the Olympic bid and we were successful there and I was asked to be an ambassador of this one. So of course I accepted it and I’m serious about it.

“Just because we are England, love the game and we’re one of the biggest nations for the game, it doesn’t mean we are taking this bid lightly,” said Beckham.

“I think we’re right because we are a nation that loves the game. The facilities around our country are exceptional. You look at the stadiums and they are second to none. If we were given the World Cup and it was held next week, we would be ready.

“If we want something like the World Cup in our country it’s not just given to you, you have to get things right and make a lot of people happy. We plan on doing that. Hopefully we can get it.”
