Football (soccer to Americans)

It's just before England v France at the Millennium Stadium,
an important European Championship qualifier game.
David Beckham goes into the English changing room to find all his team mates looking a bit glum.
"What's up?" he asks.
"Well, we're having trouble getting motivated for this game.
We know it's important but it's only France.
They're sh*t and we can't be bothered"
Beckham looks at them and says
"Well, I reckon I can beat these guys by myself,
you lads go down the pub."
So David Beckham goes out to play France by himself
and the rest of the England team go off for a few jars.
After a few pints they wonder how the game is going,
so they get the landlord to put the teletext on.
A big cheer goes up as the screen reads
"England 1 - France 0 (D. Beckham 10 minutes)"
He is beating France all by himself!
Anyway, a few more pints later
and the game is forgotten until someone remembers
"It must be full time now, let's see how he got on."
They put the teletext on.
"Result from the Millennium Stadium :
England 1 (Beckham 10 minutes) - France 1 (Zidane 89 minutes).
They can't believe it, he has single handedly got a draw against France!!
They rush back to the Stadium to congratulate him.
They find him in the dressing room, still in his kit
, sat with his head in his hands.
He refuses to look at them.
"I've let you down, I've let you down"
"Don't be daft, you got a draw against France, all by yourself
And they only scored at the very very end!"
"No, No, I have, I've let you down.
I got sent off after 12 minutes!!!!!!"
