Becks looking forward to Yorke reunion

Becks looking forward to Yorke reunion
England captain David Beckham admitted he is relishing the chance to face his former Manchester United colleague Dwight Yorke after being drawn with Trinidad and Tobago at next summer's World Cup.

At the draw in Leipzig, England were drawn with the Caribbean side, Eriksson's native Sweden and South American qualifiers Paraguay. And Real Madrid midfielder Beckham revealed it will be a nostalgic affair to face Yorke, who will be in Germany after the Caribbean nation qualified for their first World Cup.

He told "Watching the World Cup draw has already excited me as I think about the tournament ahead. We meet a familiar opponent in Sweden - one both the players and manager know well. I am looking forward to playing my old team-mate Dwight Yorke with Trinidad and Tobago. He is someone who I share many great memories with."

England avoided the heavyweights and was also drawn against Paraguay, which it beat at the 1986 World Cup, and debutante Trinidad and Tobago.

"They are difficult games, but I am happy with the group," Eriksson told BBC television from the draw in Leipzig, Germany. "It could have been worse, much worse."
