David Beckham – Goal from the halfway line


Becks became an instantly recognisable figure after his magnificent goal from the half way line against Wimbledon on the opening day of the 96-97 season. He launched a speculative effort which caught Neil Sullivan off his line and sailed in from 50 yards. Beckham never looked back as he made his England debut just two weeks later and has been a mega-star ever since. He went on to become an automatic first choice for United that season and was also voted PFA young player of the year.
