Above is an excerpt from the documentary David Beckham: New Beginnings which will be aired on ESPN at 7:30pm on July 21 ahead of Becks debut with the LA Galaxy against Chelsea FC.
The one-hour documentary follows David Beckham’s journey from leaving Real Madrid to starting his new career across the Atlantic in Los Angeles in Major League Soccer. The documentary will include “unprecedented access” to David Beckham as he and his family prepare for their new life in America. It will also feature Becks recent comebacks – his recall to England’s national team and the important role he played in Real Madrid’s 2007 La Liga title campaign. It will include interview footage with Becks which will cover rejoining England’s national team, how his teammates reacted, reflections on playing for the national team for the first time at the new Wembley Stadium, and his thoughts on the future of his international career and Euro 2008 while playing for the Galaxy.
