Baxter Talks About David Beckham's Famous Free-Kick

SuperSport United head coach Stuart Baxter may have spent most of his career outside of the United Kingdom, but he was there the day David Beckham scored a stunning free-kick against Greece. Can you guess what he had to say about it?

The 63-year-old was on The Dan Nicholl Show recently when he revealed some insight into the build-up to Beckham's famous goal, which sent England through to the 2002 FIFA World Cup.

Baxter, who was the coach of England's U19 squad at the time, revealed that he had watched Beckham in training before that big game, explaining how the player had struggled to hit the target throughout the session.

"Becks" grew visibly frustrated during training, and in the match, Teddy Sheringham even offered to take the decisive set-piece for his teammate in the dying stages as he had struggled with his free-kicks in the entire fixture, only for Beckham to turn him down and then score the famous strike.

The former Chiefs mentor then went on to explain how he uses that moment as an example to teach his players about mental strength.

Check out what Baxter had to say about it!
