Beckham plays dirty to beat 10 year olds
David Beckham may be a family man, but when it comes to winning it seems he will go to any lengths necessary to beat the opposition. Even if they are a bunch of 10-year-olds.
Beckham was recently in China to promote football and improve its image after the game was rocked by match fixing scandals. He is expected to help bring the Chinese Super League (CSL) to the world and is embracing his new role as a football ambassador for the country’s FA. For someone who could have easily sat back and rested on his laurels, enjoyed an early retirement with his wife and kids, or even spent his leisure time playing exciting casino games at an exclusive online establishment like iPhonecasino.com.au, Beckham has decided to rather give back to a sport that made him a multimillionaire and international football legend.
On his arrival at the Olympic Stadium in eastern China’s Nanjing City, Beckham was greeted by thousands of screaming fans when he arrived to spend some time training with China’s youth. The former England captain got plenty of laughs when picked up a young player and stole the ball from him in a cheeky move that was snapped on video by Chinese reporters.
It seems his decision to retire was justified when he played in a five a side match with six 10-year-olds at the Olympic Stadium and his best defence of reclaiming the ball was to scoop an unsuspecting player up and retrieve the ball. It seems Becks was outwitted by the youngsters and he had to resort to dirty tactics to keep his reputation in place.
When his attempts to retrieve the pall from one of the players failed he simply swooped the kid off the pitch, placed him to one side and ran away with possession, causing great hilarity for all that were watching. The move spread like wildfire when reporters released footage and the short clip has become something of an internet sensation.
Beckham may resort to cheeky tactics to stay ahead now that he has retired, but he has proved off pitch he is all heart. He has spent some of his promotional tour visiting sick children and will be joined by his wife Victoria for a charity event at the end of the week.
