England vs Algeria: Beckham and England coming to Cape Town
David Beckham won’t have to travel far from his Cape Town home to represent or support England when they play Algeria at Cape Town Stadium at the 2010 FIFA World Cup on June 18 next year.
At the draw in Cape Town, England was drawn along with USA, Slovenia and Algeria in Group C.
Cape Town, confirmed by British Airways as the world’s most popular destination in 2010, will host thousands of English visitors. Cape Town is known for its celebrity appeal, and the Beckham family’s presence will further add to this.
Beckham was one of the media personalities taking part in formalities of the 2010 FIFA World Cup Final Draw in Cape Town on December 4, 2009. Dressed in a light grey suit and sporting a Mohican-style haircut, he was a popular celebrity amongst the crowd of thousands that gathered in Long Street, Cape Town, to watch the Final Draw on a huge screen.
