Becks refuses to be compared to Moore

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star made his 108th cap for England against Spain on Wednesday, equalling Moore’s caps tally.

“At the end of the day, Bobby Moore won the World Cup and he’s icon around the world and especially in England,” said Beckham.

“No-one can be compared to Bobby Moore because he’s such a legend, he’s a player I will always look up to as our World Cup winner, our World Cup-winning captain.

“I’m just very honoured to be even be mentioned in the same breath as him.”

Beckham struggled to get into the squad during Steve McClaren’s reign.

He added: “At one time I didn’t think I was going to make it to 95 or 96 to be honest. I missed 11 games in that period and it was disappointing.

“But I’m glad to be back in it now and I’m enjoying it.”
