David Beckham was one of the world's biggest stars by 1998 and was a key component of Manchester United's success in the late 90s. The 1998-99 season saw Beckham help lead Manchester United to a famous treble when he delivered both corners for the two late goals that led to a dramatic UEFA Champions League win against Bayern Munchen. His success continued as Beckham and Manchester United won a further 3 consecutive Premier League titles.

David Beckham spent four years at Real Madrid as part of their Galacticos era and his spell in Spain started well. Rel won the Spanish Super Cup in 2003, with Beckham scoring the final goal. A career-high and low came for Beckham during his last season with Madrid, however. Victory was needed on the final matchday to win the title, and Beckham cruelly limped off injured in the 65th minute. Late in the match, his team-mates secured the win they needed to ensure Beckham left for LA Galaxy on a high note.

David Beckham came through the Manchester United academy during a golden era and made his first-team debut in 1994. He soon became a regular starter as a right midfielder and helped United secure a Premier League and FA Cup double in 1995-96. Beckham's reputation rocketed in August 1996 when he famously lobbed Wimbledon keeper Neil Sullivan from his own half and, just two weeks later, Beckham earned his first England cap when he made his debut against Moldova.

This recent year of FIFA introduced us to 12 new icons, a number of which Beckham will have played with or against, it looks like another one is being added.

This isn't the first time a new Icon has been added to FIFA post-launch, last year Riquelme was added with the Conmebol Libertadores and Sudamericana update.

It begs the question what his Moments card will look like? A suitable 93 is most likely and you must imagine it will be based on THAT free-kick against Greece...
