David Beckham is an English former professional footballer. He played for Manchester United, Preston North End, Real Madrid, Milan, LA Galaxy, Paris Saint-Germain, and the England national team. He was awarded the Best FIFA Men’s Player in 1999 and 2001. Beckham has consistently ranked among the highest earners in football, and in 2013 he was listed as the highest-paid player in the world, earning over $50 million in the previous 12 months. He announced his retirement in May 2013.
Unicef charity match was held in Old Trafford in 2015, which was called the Theatre of Dreams. “It’s incredible that we are going to be bringing so many of the world’s greatest footballers together under one roof for this match. It’s a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness and vital funds for Unicef to help improve the lives of children across the world.” said David Beckham.
The two teams were Great Britain and Ireland XI led by Beckham and Rest of the World XI. Beckham’s team was stronger with current Premier League players such as John Terry, Darren Fletcher and Peter Crouch. They won 3-1 World XI.
The most exciting moment was that Brooklyn replaced his father in Great Britain and Ireland. But that was not the end for Beckham as he soon returned in place of Sol Campbell to play out the closing minutes. In 1999, Manchester United got the title of UEFA Champions League. Beckham took little Brooklyn to Old Trafford Stadium. After 15 years, 16-year-old Brooklyn made his international debut as a footballer in this stadium. Maybe because he was a little nervous, Brooklyn made several basic mistakes.
After the match, Beckham said that Brooklyn preferred photography to football. He would support his kids if they had their own hobbies.
