VIDEO: David Beckham’s Tearful Farewell to Soccer

Most Craved: The ability to retire at age 38.

 

David Beckham walked off the pitch in Paris Saturday to chants, cheers and tears as one of the most iconic stars in the game ended his soccer career as a midfielder substitute for Paris Saint-Germain. 

Saturday, Crave's NESN reported, Beckham started and captained the team in a match against Brest. His teammates all hugged him when his number was called for the final time as the fans, among them French President Nicolas Sarkozy, rose in applause — a fitting end for Beckham's 20-year career.

Beckham told reporters he had to work to keep his emotions in check for the entire second half.
