On Saturday, May 18th, the 38-year old brought down the curtain on his 20-year professional soccer career with one final game as honorary captain of the Paris St. Germain (PSG) team.

As usual, David who played until half-time, did not disappoint.

Then with tears flowing freely, an emotional Beckham waved his farewell to a cheering crowd of fans who gave him the standing ovation he so deserved.

Beckham entered the soccer scene in 1992 at the age of 17 as a midfielder for Manchester United, before rising to become captain of England's International team.

He led the team in over 50 games including, numerous World Cup matches. In addition to playing for Manchester United and England, he also played for Real Madrid, LA Galaxy and most recently, the Paris St. Germain.

                      David Beckham was okay but I will always be loyal to Messi and Luka Modric and Eden Hazard and Kevin Debreyneur and Mohamed Salah and Aniesta and Toni Kroos and Mezut Ozil and Manuel Neur and David Silva and I guess you get the point.
