David Beckham Retiring From Soccer

David Beckham’s done showing off his swag on the soccer field. Breaking the hearts of millions of fans across the world, the legend announced plans Thursday to retire from the sport at the end of the season. “I feel now is the right time to finish my career, playing at the highest level,” Beckham told the Associated Press. The English legend spent six years as captain of England’s main soccer team, and became the first player to participate in 100 UEFA Championship League matches. Beckham joined France’s top soccer league, Paris Saint-Germain, in January.

Beckham was sent off in this World Cup '98 match against Argentina.
