Angry fan confronts Beckham

Published Add your comment

The Football Association have formally complained to FIFA after an angry England fan barged his way into the Three Lions' dressing room and confronted David Beckham in Cape Town on Friday night.

England were booed off following their 0-0 draw with Algeria at the Green Point Stadium that leaves their World Cup hopes hanging by a thread.

And one supporter was so angry he took direct action and evaded security to remonstrate with the former skipper, who has been a constant presence since England's arrival in South Africa.

The Football Association have formally complained to FIFA after an angry England fan barged his way into the Three Lions' dressing room and confronted David Beckham in Cape Town on Friday night.

England were booed off following their 0-0 draw with Algeria at the Green Point Stadium that leaves their World Cup hopes hanging by a thread.

And one supporter was so angry he took direct action and evaded security to remonstrate with the former skipper, who has been a constant presence since England's arrival in South Africa.

The intruder was eventually hustled away but the England squad were unnerved by the incident which came at the end of an awful evening.

Having brought their own security people with them to South Africa, the incident was particularly worrying because both Prince William and Prince Harry who have been on a tour of southern Africa had been present in the dressing room although thankfully both had left before the security breach.

And the FA are in no doubt where the responsibility lay.

"A fan got in past FIFA security," said an FA spokesman. "We have formerly complained to FIFA after the game and will follow it up in writing. This is not acceptable and thankfully no serious harm was done."
