It’s been a while since we featured a Random Great Goal here on Pies and today seems like as good a day as any other to reboot the series.

We’re kicking back into life with a simple yet devastating beauty from David Beckham from back in his Real Madrid days, specifically a game against Sevilla in May of 2006 – the final day of the La Liga season.

Having eye-balled Roberto Carlos’ yawning great ball over the top, Becks plucks the ball out of the air with the cutest of first touches before slipping a finish past the advancing Sevilla ‘keeper to put Madrid 2-0 up with his second goal of the game.

Three touches and in. Not quite Route One, but certainly one of the low A-roads…

Despite Becks’ best efforts, Madrid went on to lose 4-3 in front of 42,000 fans at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and thus washed up in second place in the table, some 12 whole points behind title winners Barcelona – thus effectively bringing the Galactico era to an end with a muffled fart.

(Many thanks to Pies fan Blagoj for the tip-off)

    LOVE that the clip includes Sergio Ramos working on his hair. And, with bottled water no less. One more bottle floating in the ocean, so he can have cool hair. Nice!

    Whoa I’ve never thought Becks has that kind of skill … and a lovely long ball from Roberto Carlos! Becks himself would be proud of that pass .. hahaha
