David Beckham Arrives in Manchester

The hero returns to the Theater of Dreams. Fans and the British media clamored to get a glimpse of AC Milan’s on loan midfielder David Beckham as the Englishman arrives to play for the Italians against his old club Manchester United on Wednesday night. All the game needed was for Beckham to score a goal.

And Beckham nearly did score a wonderful volley. He struck as you’d expect him too, with precision and power but wasn’t wide enough of the keeper to score. After the game Beckham picked up a Manchester United scarf that had been thrown down on to the pitch and put it on.

The camera’s a bit shaky but it’s a good sense of what it was like once Beckham entered the field. Fans even chanted:
“There’s only one David Beckham!”
