BBC Sport - World Cup 2014: 100 great World Cup moments - 54 days to go

World Cup moments: Beckham sent off

BBC Sport counts down 100 of the greatest World Cup moments, as the 2014 tournament in Brazil draws nearer.

Today looks back to the 1998 World Cup second-round match between Argentina and England, when David Beckham received a straight red for kicking out at Diego Simeone.

He became at the time only the second player to be sent off for England at a World Cup, after Ray Wilkins received a red card in 1986.
