David Beckham Drops A Defender And Scores During Man United Legends Game

A rematch of the '99 UCL Final between United and Bayern Munich was dominated by the 44-year-old Beckham.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Manchester United’s historic treble-winning season, a Man United Legends vs. Bayern Munich Legends (a rematch of the 1999 Champions League Final) friendly was held at Old Trafford today, featuring the likes of David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Lothar Matthaus, Ze Roberto and Ivica Olic. 

United hammered the visitors 5-0 thanks to goals from Solskjaer, Dwight Yorke, Nicky Butt, Louis Saha and Beckham. 

Here’s the opener from Solskjaer — the current manager of United — after some great wing play from Beckham.  

Beckham was the star of the show. Here he is playing a cross-field raker and then receiving one from Scholes. This is the best football we’ve seen at Old Trafford for some time.  

And here’s Beckham scoring his goal. It has shades of Lionel Messi vs. Jérôme Boateng. 

We’re not sure why he ever retired.
