[Two minutes after halftime, with the score tied at 2-2, Beckham was shoved down from behind by Diego Simeone of Argentina. Still lying on the ground, in full view of the Danish referee, Kim Nielsen, Beckham kicked Simeone in the back of the right leg, drawing a red card and an immediate ejection] It’s very difficult. We played our hearts out. It’s hard to believe we’re done

[Teddy Sheringham on Thierry Henry] Thierry Henry is immense, he’s got incredible pace and it just seems he has different gears and when he gets into that third gear it’s just end of story for anyone chasing him. His pace scares defenders and I just wish I’d had half of it. But it’s not just about pace; he’s got great skill

[on Roy Keane] You need someone in a team to dictate the pace of the play and Roy does that perfectly. He defends – he’s a good tackler and a good header of the ball – and starts attacks, and passes the ball with metronomic accuracy. He works tirelessly and demands so much from his team-mates. When things are tough, like they were when United were 2-0 down in Turin in the 1999 European Cup Semi-Final, Keane gets going. But even when things are going well, he drives the team on

[Quote on Cafu] An outstanding athlete. [. . .] Cafu is very attacking [. . .] (and) can get forward and overlap, but drop back in defence within seconds. He’s a great crosser and he can score a goal too

[on Tony Adams] Tony reads the game perfectly, is a great organiser

[on Harry Kane] As a player, he reminds me of (Jurgen) Klinsmann, that enthusiasm that Jurgen had when he first came to the club, that bounding stride, I think Harry has that. He runs at defenders, can hold the ball up and the most important thing is that he scores goals. He scores all types of goals as well. He gets in the six-yard box, he’ll strike it from the edge of the box and outside the box. I like Harry. I’ve met him a couple of times and you can tell he wants to learn which is a big factor for a young footballer. He’s not big-time one bit. I just love the way he’s taken on the mantle of being the number one striker, because it’s not easy. He’s gone in there and said ‘bring it on, I’ll have some of that’ and long may it continue

[on Harry Kane] There’re always doubts there but he’s shown he can do it. He’s a fantastic player, full of goals at the moment, full of optimism, full of confidence. That’s how you want your strikers. He’s proving that he’s in the Premier League and he’s there to stay. That’s what a second season is for. He’s proven himself with flying colours. It’s very exciting

[on Harry Kane] He’s a complete striker. He can score with his left foot, right foot and with his head, from distance and from close range. He can run long or drop into areas that ask defenders questions and he can hold up the ball. He’s only 22 and you don’t really get to know your game until you’re 26/27 and in your prime. He can score goals and he wants to show you he can score goals, long may that continue!

[on Harry Kane] He’s an outstanding player. As for being like me, I think he’s probably got a little bit more than me. He can do everything I could but he’s got a bit of pace as well. He can go a long way

[Manchester United have been urged to rekindle their interest in Harry Maguire, he could be their version of Vincent Kompany or Tony Adams] Central defence is a big area where they need to find a Vincent Kompany or Tony Adams-type player. I think Harry Maguire is the one for me. He’s got great leadership qualities, and has a real calming influence. He’s very similar to Rio Ferdinand, in that he’s cool on the ball and defends very well. That would be a fine start from my point of view. Top players like Harry are going to have the choice of some big, big clubs around Europe this summer

[Home-grown talent has played a big part in the club’s past, and a 1999 Treble winner wants to see it form part of the future] I really believe they should go back to the British mentality. The core of any good, British team, comes from British players, as I see it. Over the last 20 or 30 years, if a British team does well in the league or in Europe, there’s always a core of British players involved
