Beckham Strokes Ball, Scores Big Time


So David Beckham’s US soccer career has not gone as swimmingly as he (or MLS and the LA Galaxy) had hoped, there was the ankle injury that made him miss much of last season and so far this year he has been decent but not excellent. However, for one moment in last night’s game against the KC Wizards, Beckham showed some of the deft touch that made him such a worldwide phenomenon when he lifted a ball 70 yards and over the goalkeepers head for a goal.

Awesome! It turns out that this isn’t the first time he’s done this in high-level game, he apparently did it as well when he was a fresh faced teenager for Manchester United too.

Dope.

A very grateful h/t to Unprofessional Foul

    Quiet Shatraw, you’re in Canada. Soccer is fun and that second goal is ridiculous. the first one less-so because the Goalie was nowhere near the goal.
