David Beckham: Stamina

Beckham, David: Stamina

From the mid-to-late 1990s David Robert Joseph Beckham was well-known for one thing only - his prowess on the football field (sometimes called soccer in countries that have their own football codes). Playing for powerhouse club Manchester United, Becks and his famous right foot consistently pierced the opposition's defense either by setting up goals for others or kicking them himself. This talent, along with leadership qualities and a drive for success, has seen him captain England in two World Cup series and become the first English player to score in three World Cups. His marriage in 1999 to Posh Spice, aka Victoria Adams, marked the beginning of the world's fascination with everything Beckham. Since then Beck's life has become public property, but he seems at home with the attention. Although he's been criticized for being less than eloquent when speaking in public, there's no doubt he knows exactly what to say to keep the fans coming back for more!
