Beckham predicts England-Argentina World Cup final

London: Former England football captain David Beckham on Thursday predicted an England-Argentina final in the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.

"I think obviously my choice would be England to win the competition, but that's me being biased and passionate about my country," Beckham was quoted as saying by BBC while speaking at an event in China.

The last time England progressed to the quarter-finals was in 2006.

Beckham was the captain then. Two-time winners Argentina were runners-up in 2014 and won the World Cup in 1978 and 1986.

"I'm very happy that we won the first game in the group," Beckham said.
