Beckham's England - Penalty pain
David Beckham misses his penalty against Portugal

24 June, 2004

Beckham blazes over the bar in a penalty shoot-out with Portugal in the quarter-finals of Euro 2004.

The wayward strike, coupled with Darius Vassell's miss, means England crash out after the game finishes 2-2 after extra-time.

It is the third spot-kick Beckham has missed in a row and he points the finger at a dodgy penalty spot.

Hosts Portugal reach the final but lose out to shock winners Greece.
