David Beckham is one of the greatest soccer legends known all over the world for his football prowess. In January 2013, the former England captain made his debut for Paris Saint-German (PSG) on a perfect note by helping his side triumph over Marseille by 2-0. Beckham who signed for PSG on a five month deal came off the bench in the second half, and helped to create the second goal that was vital in securing the team’s victory.
Prior to the game between Marseille and PSG on Sunday, Lyon had secured a vital victory against Lorient and was sharing the top position of the French league 1 with PSG. Therefore, Beckham’s debut for PSG on the game against Marseille was of immense significance, and the stakes were higher. More so, the game was of enormous significance because Marseille was starting the game with five points adrift of PSG.
After eleven minutes into the game, PSG scored its first goal through a Brazilian Lucas Moura, who had also been signed during the January window. This was after his 25 yard strike was deflected by defender N’Koulou, sending Marseille keeper Steve Mandanda the wrong way. As a result, the entire PSG bench went into celebrations with Coach Carlo Ancelotti smelling victory and prospects of taking the top position on the table of French league 1.
With 14 minutes remaining to the end of the game, Beckham received a warm reception by the PSG fans as he came into the field to replace Javier Pastore. Beckham who is known for his excellent curves started off the game on a superb note. Seconds into injury time, he chipped a brilliant pass to Ibrahimovic who sent the ball into Steve Mwandanda’s net clinching victory for PSG. After the game on Sunday, PSG regained the top position in the French League, moving three points clear ahead of Lyon making Beckham extremely ecstatic to be part of the team.
