Manchester United hero David Beckham scored some iconic goals over his 21 years as a professional footballer but the 47-year-old has now revealed which strike he cherishes more than any other.
Beckham, who runs the Inter Miami franchise in the MLS, was quizzed by Gary Neville on his best goals and had to be reminded of what turned out to be his favourite goal ever.
“Greece, goal against Greece,” Beckham said when Neville quizzed him on the matter. “Not the halfway line one, no?” Neville curiously said in his response.
“Actually, I forgot about that one. Yeah, that one. We’ll say the halfway line,” a giggling Beckham admitted.
Beckham’s last-minute free-kick against Greece has gone down in the history books as one of the most important goals in modern history, with the sensational strike at Old Trafford sealing their qualification for the 2002 World Cup.
He would be forgiven for not overlooking that moment but the goal against Wimbledon, a halfway worldie, is a truly iconic moment in his stellar career.
