As the first global soccer celebrity, David Beckham‘s career played out right before our eyes.
We saw that goal he scored for Manchester United against Wimbledon in 1996 — the one from inside his own half. We saw him wave a tearful goodbye to the game after winning the Ligue 1 (French first division) title in May. We saw everything that happened in between.

See lego’s version of the best moments of Beckham’s career in the video below.

The news earlier this year that David Beckham was retiring was not unexpected; the bloke is 38 years old after all, and he’s been playing for some two decades. That can tire a guy out, not to mention the fact that he’s busy with a modeling career on the side.
Still, while Beckham certainly was not in the prime of his career anymore, he will be dearly missed by the global football...
It was another fine season in Le Championnat, with various stories, headlines, sub-plots and the customary English media infatuation with David Beckham and Joey Barton crossing the channel to ply their trade with Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique de Marseille respectively.
