Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse admits he models his free-kick taking on David Beckham.

Ward-Prowse has drawn comparisons with the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star.

"I have studied videos of Beckham and I have watched all his free kicks," Ward-Prowse said. "He is someone I do look to compare myself to in terms of set piece deliveries.

"He was a big role model for me, not only on the pitch but off the pitch. The way he applies himself."
