Beckham kicks Diego Simeone and is sent off by the Danish referee Kim Milton Nielsen in the 1998 World Cup. Beckham said he received death threats after this but redeemed himself as he helped England to qualify for the next World Cup with his free kick against Greece in the dying minutes and then again with a penalty kick against Argentina in the World Cup in 2002.
Simeone bashes into Beckham and then Beckham barely kicks him with his foot when he's down on the ground - a terrible call and sending off by the referee. This shouldn't have been a red card. Maybe a yellow for Beckham and a yellow for Simeone.
