David Beckham is the greatest and best loved footballer. Famous both on and off the pitch, the footballing legend has reached iconic status across the world. From the joyous screams of young girls to the chants of support from gruff-voiced football fans, everywhere David Beckham goes it is evident that he has captured the love of the nation. In 2003, David Beckham was awarded an OBE for his services to football, and now, with his outstanding popularity still reaching far and wide, he is in a position to receive the ultimate honour - a knighthood from the Queen. This amazing biography traces the incredible accomplishments of this kind-hearted and talented star. First playing for Manchester United's first team at the age of 17, he became a household name a few years later with a breath taking goal against Wimbledon. Now, over a decade on, he is the fifth most-capped English player of all time and the only one to score in three different World Cups. Like his fame, David Beckham's achievements extend far beyond the football pitch.
He has supported the UNICEF since his early days at Manchester; in January 2005 he became a goodwill ambassador for the charity and in July 2005 e opened football academies in LA and London. This is the inspiring story of an extremely talented and devoted man - an honest and complete portrait of how the golden boy of English football had manager to take this and many other countries by storm.
