David Beckham scores winner direct from a corner kick

Call this magic football.

David Beckham is one of the finest footballers in history and the most handsome and good-looking too.

This former England, Manchester United and Real Madrid playmaker has scored many magical goals.

That includes free kicks from 30, 40, 50, 60 and even 70 metres from the left, right or centre of the field.

His insiwnger or banana kick can also makes the ball swerves to every direction he wants it to be.

“I saw the goal keeper going out of the goal and saw a little bit of a gap. So I knew if I put in an area it was either going to get a touch off somebody or go straight in.” – David Beckham.

Beckham was inspirational in LA Galaxy’s 2-1 win over Chicago Fire in the American Super League on Sunday 10th July 2011.

Earlier, a trademark free-kick set up Landon Donovan for the opener and after Chicago equalised the former England captain stepped up to the plate again and scored the winner, direct from a corner kick - his second such goal in his illustrious professional career.

Taking a corner in the 62nd minute, Beckham whipped in a low effort, missed by everyone and secured the win for LA Galaxy.

LA coach Bruce Arena said after the game: “The second goal, did that touch anyone? I don’t know how it went in; but that’s why we pay him the big money for.”

This is truly a great visionary goal and will be long remembered.

Incidentally, this was Beckham’s second ever goal straight from a corner, known in certain parts as an “Olimpico” – he notched one whilst on loan at Preston North End in 1995.

Long Live Beckham... God Bless the Queen...
