Via the Manchester Evening News, the details of the English team’s Last Supper:
“Beckham is separated from his team mates, which could show he is one of the few English players to play abroad. His concentration could also show how the England captain has realised the tournament, which starts in Germany this week, could be his last World Cup.
England coach Sven Goran-Eriksson is shown as Mary Magdalene.
The Da Vinci Code film, inspired by Dan Brown’s novel, suggests that Jesus and Mary Magdalene had a child and the bloodline survives to this day.
And the England coach is seated next to his successor Steve McClaren, who is rudely blowing a raspberry in the Swede’s ear.
Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard appears to be having a row with Manchester United defender Gary Neville, possibly about who should be next to succeed Beckham as captain or just renewing traditional Liverpool – Manchester rivalries.
Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney is making a rude gesture to Beckham, possibly a reference to the argument they had at the Northern Ireland game.”
