England 1-2 Germany: David Beckham - Only 'Time Difference' Will Tell


Now that David Beckham is commuting from LA to play for England does that mean we can have some fun?!!?!!?!!

Think about it. By the time Beckham flies back to LA after playing for England, did he really play for England and did England really lose to Germany? Or was it all down to time difference? After all a 11-12 hour flight back to LA, plus a 8-9 hour time difference and David lands back at LAX before England kick off!!

Surely not. England lost 2-1 after taking a 9th minute lead through Frank Lampard (a Chelsea player who scored his first England goal in a year), and despite Lehmann's best efforts to appease the home support with various Arsenesque blunders, England still conspired to lose this pitiful friendly that saw Newcastle's 'new hot shot' with the new hair colour and style Alan Smith and 'I have just played a few minutes first team football this season' Michael Owen the hot shot sharpshooter both start up front.

Didn't Owen prove in the first half....... NOT.... how hot he ISN'T when blasting over from close range after another Lehmann error?

Anyway back to that time difference!!
