'Beckham's smile can melt a box of bon-bons!'

June 21, 2006

Ihave not been able to watch the World Cup matches regularly as I was in and out of town," says Bollywood actress Raima Sen.

"Whenever I get a chance I switch on the television set to catch a glimpse of my favourite players."

Have YOU joined a football team yet?

"Some of them are so cute! I just can't take my eyes off them. Whenever there is an England match, I make it a point to see at least the highlights.

How can I miss the chance of seeing (David) Beckham? I don't have any qualms in admitting that I like Beckham more for his looks than his game. His smile is sure to melt a box of bonbons. And I love Ronaldinho's hair style!" she adds.

'Germany could win the World Cup'

"Going by the matches I have seen so far, Ronaldinho has touched my heart. Initially I had thought Italy would do well, but the team's performance till date has not been up to the mark," says the actress, who acted in her first film when she was 17.

Which team should win the World Cup? "Brazil, of course! It would be quite an experience to see (my favourite) Ronaldinho's team lifting the cup."
