Beckham: There was a coach who thought I could never play for the national team

I believe that most of people know David Beckham who was the greatest English former footballer and played for his nation and other football clubs, including Manchester United, Preston North End, Real Madrid, Milan, LA Galaxy and Paris Saint-Germain. He not only helped these teams he played for get titles of major sporting events but also got many individual awards. During his professional player career, Beckham was awarded the Best FIFA Men’s Player in 1999 and 2001, England Player of the Year in 2003 and FWA Tribute Award in 2008.

He has become a national hero and the most handsome man in the eyes of the British people and women around the world. His each change of hairstyle will become the leading fashion in the world. From that we can see that he is so influential. In addition, he has consistently ranked among the highest earners in world football.

There is a fact that the status of football in the United Kingdom is so high. We can explain it with a word from the legendary footballer that is “Football permeates our culture, there is in our DNA. We are born into this world, football with us, never to be parted.”

David Beckham had played 115 games as a professional football player, only after Peter Leslie Shilton(125) and Wayne Rooney(119). However, he said in an interview that there was a coach of the youth team who thought he could never play for the national team.

“About the time I was 12 years old, an English coach said that I would never be able to play for the national team.”

“I tried hard to get into the club’s youth training camp, but they always thought that I was thin and not strong enough, or that I couldn’t join the national team.”

“Thirty years have passed. I played 115 games for my own country, participated in three World Cups, and became the captain of England national team. I spent happy time in this team.”

“So, I want to convey a message to young players. You may experience frustration and hardship in the process of growing up, but be sure to believe in yourself, enjoy your life, and maintain your love of playing football.”

There is an English player Jamie Vardy scoring a goal after 366 days for the England national team in a match against Italy. He proved himself in this game as a substitute because Harry Kane got injured. Therefore, it is possible for him to participate in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The two warm-up matches Vardy has played show his power, shooting skills and excellent ability of reading a game. Compared with Kane, Valdy is faster and he is good at offense.

England football shirts are high-quality and low-cost for each fan. They are increasingly popular among fans. You can wear a shirt to show your loyalty and support. Cheer on your favorite team and help players win more victories.
