London, Dec 24 : Soccer ace David Beckham described scoring the winning penalty against Argentina in the 2002 World Cup as 'the best and biggest thing' of his career.
During in an interview with presenter Kate Thornton, the 32-year-old footballer revealed that the goal regained him the public's confidence following a hate campaign because of his sending off against the same side four years earlier.
"For me, it was the best and biggest thing that I could've ever done in my career at that time," the Daily Snack quoted Beckham, as saying.
"The moment the ball struck the back of the net, funnily enough, my mind went clear, everything that I was thinking, everything that I had gone through.
"I knew how much it meant for me to score that goal for my family, and of course for the fans, because the rivalry against Argentina is huge," he added.
Beckham's interview will broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on Christmas Day and will be available online afterwards at bbc.co.uk/radio2. (ANI)
