David is married to Victoria Adams, who was part of the British pop group The Spice Girls ("Posh Spice"). He has three sons: Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz Beckham. His parents names are Sandra and Ted, and his two sisters are called Joanne and Lynne.
David has been dubbed a master of set-pieces specializing in free-kicks, and he has developed one which is known around the world as the 'Beckham,' which involves lifting the ball over the 'wall', sending it towards the far post, but bending it back to the near post confusing the keeper and having the ball just dip under the bar for the goal (hence the movie title Bend it Like Beckham).
David scored on his first team debut in the European Cup against Galatasaray. He was signed by Manchester United to their youth training program at the age of 14. His youth team also featured the Neville brothers, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes. He began his footballing career at the age of 17. During his career he has played and captained his home country England in many tournaments including the World Cup and the European Championship. Since leaving Manchester United, he has played for Real Madrid in Spain, LA Galaxy (his current club) in the USA, and is currently on loan to AC Milan in Italy.
