David Beckham: What were the Man United and Real Madrid legend's top 10 goals?


David Beckham is one of the most famous faces in the world.

It's sometimes easy to forget that he was once a sublime footballer.

The East London lad enjoyed the sort of career that many can only dream of after playing for Manchester United, Real Madrid, LA Galaxy, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.

While he's now known for his work off the pitch with his philanthropic efforts and his new venture with MLS franchise Inter Miami, it's well worth remembering some of the reasons why so many of us fell in love with 'Goldenballs'.

To this day, Beckham possesses the best right foot that the game has ever seen, with almost every single effort being an absolute worldie.

It'd be very easy to spend hours going through every goal to pick out your favourite, but to save you a bit of time, we've done the work for you.
