Beckham: England's talented players can see it succeed at Euro 2012

The former Manchester United midfielder, being awarded for his 115 international caps, believes the Three Lions can succeed in Poland and Ukraine thanks to a strong squad and boss

David Beckham is confident England has the talent required to succeed at Euro 2012.

Newly-appointed manager Roy Hodgson has already seen his Three Lions produce two credible performances against Norway and Belgium in preparation for the tournament.

And Beckham, who currently plies his trade at LA Galaxy, believes England is capable of living up to the ever-present pressure of succeeding in Poland and Ukraine due to the setup in place.

“There will always be expectations on an England team going into a major competition.” Beckham told ITV. “We've got a new manager and a lot of talented players coming through, so we're looking forward to this one.

“I want England to succeed in every competition they go into and every game they play. I'm looking forward to it.”

Beckham received a standing ovation on his return to Wembley on Saturday during the halftime of England’s pre-tournament friendly against Belgium.

The former Manchester United legend stood alongside fellow England veterans Sir Bobby Robson and Peter Shilton to collect an award for playing over 100 internationals for his country.
