This past weekend saw David Beckham return to competitive football for the first time since March after tearing his Achilles’ tendon.
Superstar Beckham managed around 20 minutes to see out the game as the LA Galaxy triumphed over Columbus Crew 3-1, with Beckham seemingly not having lost any of his technique as he sprayed passes around with abandon and even saw an inspired effort denied by the back of a defenders head!
Becks’ appearance marks the conclusion of a speedy recovery for the ex-England captain, who was told that he’d be out until November after being stretchered off the pitch whilst playing for AC Milan against Chievo.
As usual, we were paying close attention to what was on Beckham’s feet, and once again we can report that Beckham has chosen to stick with his custom Predator_X/ PowerSwerve hybrid football boots, with the upper of his signature adidas Predator_X DB‘s, and the soleplate and heel counter of the older PowerSwerves.
In a post match interview, Beckham revealed his eagerness to get back on the pitch, recalling an exchange with Galaxy coach Bruce Arena after half time:
He came up to me and he said ‹Ĺ›How about 10 to 15 minutes? We want to get a good 10 to 15 minutes, and I was like, ‹Ĺ›Well how about 20-25?˘€žË So he kind of listened to me and we met in the middle and he put me on for 20 minutes.”
We’re thrilled to see Becks’ back, and capping off a victory for the LA Galaxy too. Is it too early to start asking whether he’ll force his way back into the England squad?
Or do you just want talk about Beck’s football boots?
