What will Becks say next?
After David Beckham's astonishing admission that he deliberately earned himself a yellow card against Wales, a bookmaker has released odds about what the England captain might confess to next.

WHAT NEXT FOR BECKS?
David Beckham
Wanting return to Man Utd - 12/1
Preferring Coke to Pepsi - 14/1
Preferring Nike to Adidas trainers - 18/1
Thinking Victoria's real name was Posh - 33/1
Deliberately heading Fergie's flying boot - 40/1
Thinking goals were rugby posts for Portugal pen - 66/1

Beckham has said he deliberately fouled Ben Thatcher to earn himself an automatic ban from the match in Azerbaijan on Wednesday.

Canny Beckham knew he would miss the game anyway because of a rib injury and decided to wipe the slate clean.

Now Paddy Power has drawn up a list of things he might want to get off his chest.

You can get 8/1 on him admitting he deserves a ban for the deliberate foul on Thatcher, with the same price available for saying he's overpaid.

A confession that he wears women's underwear is available at 12/1, while preferred career changes include movie star (20/1), with astronaut and fireman both at 40s.

And what about a 50/1 admission that he sucks his thumb or 25/1 that he hates all Spice Girls music?
