Recalling David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane Duo


The spell that David Beckham played for Real Madrid is mostly underrated. The star player from England swapped Manchester to join the Spanish side during the 2003 summer transfer window. But he certainly lived his life with the “Galactico” tag. It is really difficult to choose anyone from his 51 assists for Real. However, it is also tricky to find a better assist than the magnificent pass by David Beckham to Zinedine Zidane in 2003 September. David Beckham also made Los Blancos a recognized brand across the world by some of his incredible assists in his famed white shirt.

The cross-field ball that David passed to Zidane was considered as just half of a genius combo. Former’s long-range pass just came to the foot of Zidane and his weak left foot helped to guide the ball and swipe it into the farthest corner of the net.

The match was itself an absolute fest for Real Madrid fans as they were declared winners with a score 7-2 and the goal scorers were all legendary players. Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo Nazario, and Raul Gonzalez were all found at the back of the net, and Beckham played the entire 90 minutes to himself, finally getting recognized for two super assists. The Englishmen ended his first whole season of La Liga with a total of 12 assists by playing only 32 games.

David Beckham decided to finish his stint for four years with Real Madrid having to name one title of La Liga and a trophy for the Spanish Super Cup. He was also named the Player of the Year for Real Madrid in the year 2005 and 2006 after assisting to another 11 goals in the 31 games that he has played for Premier League. Beckham fans still now remember his change in attitude right after stepping into the football ground. That right foot has been really special for them.
