Wherever David Beckham goes, cameras follow. It’s been that way for some time, so we shouldn’t really be surprised when he packs the house — even for practice. Beckham practiced with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) for the first time Wednesday. An estimated 150 reporters and photographers from at least four countries crammed into pens at PSG’s practice facility in suburban Paris to watch him meet and greet his new teammates. The former England captain stretched, jogged and played some soccer during the hour-long practice session. He played his last game for the L.A. Galaxy on Dec. 1, and is now racing to improve his fitness. PSG visits Sochaux on Sunday and Beckham could make an appearance. It’s more likely that he’ll debut on Feb. 24 against Olympique Marseille. Beckham, 37, signed a five-month contract which expires in June, but he’s already brought added luster to the star-studded team. Jerseys with his name and number (32) have been flying off the shelves at PSG’s team store. The fact that fans and reporters braved the chilly conditions proves that he can still draw a crowd — not that his ability to do so was ever in doubt. It’s hard to predict what his on-field impact will be, but we’re certain that somewhere there’s another club waiting to sign him in the summer. If he can make this kind of splash for practice (not the game), just imagine what it will be like when he takes the field under the bright lights. Watch a recap of Beckham’s first PSG practice in the video below. Have a question for Marcus Kwesi O’Mard? Send it to him via Twitter at @NESNsoccer, NESN Soccer’s Facebook page or send it here. He will pick a few questions to answer every week for his mailbag.
