"LONDON, Oct 13 (Reuters) - England captain David Beckham has apologised to the Football Association (FA), his team mates and supporters after deliberately getting booked against Wales.
Beckham sparked a controversy by telling a British newspaper he picked up a yellow card in Saturday's World Cup qualifying victory in order to serve a one-match ban while injured. His admission followed extensive media criticism of the challenge.
"In an interview ... I was asked a question and made a frank and honest admission to counter the negative speculation.
"I now know that was wrong and apologise to the Football Association (FA), the England manager, my team mates and all England fans for this."
Resign, you jackass.
