Beckham to be honoured by UEFA for achieving more than 100 international caps
London, May 25(ANI): Former Manchester United midfielder David Beckham will be honoured at England's final Euro warm up match with a UEFA award, for having achieved over 100 international caps.
Beckham, who made the last of his 115 appearances for England in 2009, will receive a cap and a medal at half time of the June 2 friendly against Belgium at Wembley, according to the English Football Association.
The award will also be presented to 1966 World Cup-winning striker Bobby Charlton, who played 106 times for England, and retired goalkeeper Peter Shilton, who made a record 125 appearances.
"Throughout my career I've been pretty successful. I've played for some pretty big teams. I've played for my country quite a few times and for managers without sentiment," Sports24 quoted Beckham, as saying.
"I'm very proud of the fact and I have always found it an honour that people want to buy my shirt, that fans turn up to watch the team I am playing in or to see myself. I've always found that a huge honour," he added.
After beginning his career at United in 1992, Beckham made his England debut against Moldova in September 1996. (ANI)
