Dear friends and Teachers,
A. David Beckham has worn the cloak of English football team 6 times at Wordcups.
- Is this sentence grammatical?
Thanks a million!
Yes, he's been capped for England in several World Cups - probably more than 20 times (several times in each competition - and it depends what you mean by 'the World Cup') and six times he's 'worn the captain's arm-band' too. Anyone who plays for the country wins a cap - even a late substitute [=a 'reserve' player who comes on at the end to replace a tired or injured player]. Beckham has won 100 caps (or maybe one more - not sure). If you're the captain you 'wear the arm-band'. (Sometimes, to mark someone's death, everyone in the team wears an arm-band, but the arm-band always marks the captain).
