After letting victory slip through their fingers against Sweden, can Beckham and Co. find pride and passion in this Group F crunch clash.
Players and fans of both sides have been eagerly awaiting this World Cup fixture for months and after the opening group games this fixture has taken on even more significance. Having defeated Nigeria in Ibaraki on Sunday, the Argentinians are in pole position and England know they must pull out all the stops if they are to qualify as Group winners.
David Beckham, in particular, will want to shine in Sapporo after being sent from the field in the infamous clash with Argentina four years ago. England would leave the field in France with their World Cup dreams left in tatters as spot-kicks proved their downfall once again. Those nightmare recollections will be dispelled from the minds of the brave XI who take to the pitch on Friday in search of English glory. Will lady luck smile on the Three Lions this time?
