As David Beckham announces his retirement at the end of the season, we pay tribute to Goldenballs' finest moments on the pitch. Chips, freekicks, quick feet, perfect hair - the man had it all. Here's to Beckham.

England vs Greece , 2001

The goal that secured England's place in 2002's World Cup Finals.


Wimbledon vs Manchester United, 1996

A goal which caused John Motson to muse, "David Beckham, surely an England player of the future". Spot on Motty.


Manchester United vs Birmingham City, 2002

We've tried (and failed) to replicate this chip on Fifa ever since...


LA Galaxy vs Barcelona, 2009

Like a fine wine, Beckham's free kicks only improved with age. While playing in an arguably inferior league, he was still able to score against the best in the world.


Manchester United vs Real Madrid, 2000

United lost 2-3 on the night, but this goal proved that Beckham isn't just a dead ball specialist.
