LONDON (AP) - Next stop, Alf Ramsey. Mind the gap.
Wembley Park and the other 366 stations on the London Underground map have been renamed after soccer players on a commemorative edition to mark the 150th anniversaries of both the English Football Association and the capital's transit network.
Leytonstone has been renamed ``David Beckham'' in recognition of the former England captain's birthplace.
Renowned overseas players also appear, with the Circle Line featuring ``Giants of the World Cup'' including Pele, Diego Maradona and Michel Platini.
The Tube map was designed by Harry Beck in 1933 and inspired by electric circuit diagrams.
