Heskey scored for England in a 3-0 victory over Denmark in the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan, propelling the team to the quarter-finals.

He said, “David Beckham played the ball. I took a touch and just smashed it. When it hits the back of the net – it’s just euphoria. There’s been some really, really top talents and extraordinary players that haven’t played in the World Cup. And I’m lucky enough to say I’ve played in two.”
