Young David Beckham‘s dream is to become a professional football player and he never changed his mind throughout his growing up years. His parents are diehard fans of Manchester United and together as a family with David, they would go to Old Trafford to catch the matches of Manchester United. It is no wonder that young David would later choose to play for Manchester United later on in the future.
David’s long-awaited professional player’s debut for Manchester United came on July 8, 1991. After his fourteenth birthday, David was skilful and talented enough to be selected for the Youth team of Manchester United. Beckham first stepped on the pitch of Old Trafford not as a player, but as a young player mascot standing next to members of the Senior Team. Beckham’s senior debut only came when he came on as substitute for winger Andrei Kanchelski on 23rd September 1992. The match was Manchester United up against Brighton and it was also officially Beckham’s maiden senior debut for Manchester United.
David was also part of the Manchester United Youth Team that won the FA Youth Cup in 1992 and the runner-up place in the next year, 1993. The talented Youth Team consists of the Neville brothers, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes. When David was 18, he was offered a professional player’s contract. David Beckham’s fame continued to spread far and wide when he scored a goal in his first Champions League Match for Manchester United.
David was featured regularly on the right side of midfield, and he adds excellent passing, crossing and accurate free-kicks to his already impressive repertoire of skills. With Beckham in the team, Manchester United won the treble of the Premier League, FA Cup and the Charity Shield. It was not long before Beckham was called into the National Team setup and David made his first International debut in the match England versus Molova.
David was included as part of the 23-man squad and represented England in the 1998 World Cup and 2000 European Cup. Whenever David dons the England jersey, he will always play his hardest and best for England. David Beckham managed to amass a total tally of 61 caps for England by June 2003. David was also part of the famous Treble-winning team that lifted the Premier League, FA Cup and the European Cup during the 1998-1999 season.
