Club: Real Madrid
Beckham has been in good form for Real Madrid - encouraging news with Euro 2004 just weeks away.
Doubts whether he would succeed in Spain quickly proved unfounded and Beckham appears to have improved his game while at Real.
He has developed as a midfielder playing in a more central role, and has flourished alongside Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, Luis Figo and Roberto Carlos at the Bernabeu.
Quite simply the heartbeat of Eriksson's England - a world footballing icon.
