He focused all of his time and energy onto mastering the sport, and he was playing professionally by the time he was seventeen.Charismatic, handsome, and with a penchant for taking flashy shots, Beckham quickly grew into a fan favorite. He became a true superstar throughout Britain when he began a relationship with Spice Girl Victoria Posh Adams, and helped lead Manchester United and the England National Team to numerous victories.However, Beckham wasnt immune from backlash- he faced the outrage of fans, such as when he received a devastating red card during a heated game against English rivals Argentina.
