The Swansea left back will face the likes of Beckham, Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium on Saturday.
The 23-year-old has risen from non-league football to international level in the space of two years, and he is looking forward to facing England's big names.
Ricketts says he will be hanging around Beckham at the final whistle in the hope of grabbing his shirt.
"These are the type of games you dream about as a kid, and I'll be sticking close to Beckham afterwards for his shirt," said Ricketts.
"He might want mine for when he's drying the dishes.
"I haven't played against any of the England players at club level and certainly, nobody of David Beckham's stature.
"Put it this way, you don't get many players worth £20 million in the Championship, League One or non-league."
