Becks has worked hard and run more with the Olympic torch than at the LA Galaxy
Stuart Pearce drops David Beckham from the English Olympic squad instead picking Micah Richards in quite a shocker. After seeing his old AC Milan team mate, Andrea Pirlo having quite a Euro, this is hard to take. Ryan Giggs and Craig Bellamy are on that squad as the overage players. The mystery is who else is in team GB. Probably Aaron Ramsey, Gareth Bale, Tom Cleverly, and Chris Smalling.
Finally, England sees a post Becks world but before patting ourselves on the back, the man is a marketing miracle so never fear. He’s still got sponsors lined up and will have a huge part to play including most likely lighting the Olympic Flame.
The event co-ordinator should work out a sequence where Becks takes a trademark bend reality free kick and the ball curves to the Olympic Flame breaking a circuit and setting it on fire. Now that would be pure Goldenballs.
