David Beckham took some time away from his bizzy Olympic Games schedule and his hanging with mum & gran schedule to do a bit of celebrating in England this weekend. Becks and others were honored at Wembley Stadium yesterday with the Centurion Award presented by the Union of European Football Associations for playing 100 games for the English soccer team. Proud wife Victoria Beckham posted a photo of Becks with his awards Centurions cap on her official Twitter profile, which you can check out below.
David Beckham, Peter Shilton and Sir Bobby Charlton [were] presented with a special cap by UEFA ahead of England’s friendly with Belgium on June 2. European football’s governing body want to honour every player across the continent who has reached the milestone of playing more than 100 times for their country and the Wembley encounter – Roy Hodgson’s first game in charge – has been chosen as the designated game for England.
This is what Vicki B. had to say when she posted the photo above:
Congratulations David on playing over 100 games for England, we are so proud!! X vb
Very cool! Becks is a national treasure over there in England and it’s really cool how they love to celebrate him and his accomplishments. I wish Becks was modeling this nifty little cap in the photo rather than just holding it. I think the golden tassel would look really neat with his Robin Hood facial hair. Congrats, Becks! Happy 100!
