At just a tender age of 18, David signed a professional player's contract in January 1993 and further build up his stature as a professional player. He scored a goal in his first Champions League match which Manchester United won.
David played regularly on the right side of the midfield during the 1996-1997 season. The whole of England bore witness to David Beckham's crossing, curving free kicks and long shot abilities. With Beckham featuring regularly in the squad, Manchester United won the treble as they swept the FA Premier League, FA Cup and the Charity Shield. Soon, Beckham would be called up into the national setup and made his international debut in a game against Moldova.
In both the World Cup 1998 and European Cup 2000, David was included into the 23-man squad and played his heart out for England. Later on for the World Cup 2002, he was officially handed the role of the captain and led the national team out during the World Cup games.
By June 2003, David has amassed an impressive total of 61 caps for his country. Along with his former teammates from the Youth Team, which includes Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and the Neville brothers, David would collect the medals of the treble of the FA Cup, Premier League and the European Cup during the 1998-1999 regular season.
After Manchester United, David signed for Real Madrid for the 2003-2004 season. After helping them to win the Spanish league, he decided to have a new challenge and signed for the LA Galaxy in the United States. It took a while for him and LA Galaxy to contest for the honors of the MLS cup, that is until 2011. On Sun, 20 Nov, 2011, David and LA Galaxy will face Houston Dynamo for the final showdown to decide who will be champions of all of North America. David set up the play to pass to Robbie Keane, who lay the final pass to LA Galaxy captain Landon Donovan who scores the goal, ending a long 5-year wait for the MLS Championship title.
