thumbnail Hello,

Possibly the most well known set-piece in English football history came out on top with 48.8%, with only his strike against Wimbledon from the halfway line in 1996 coming close


Footballing superstar David Beckham announced his retirement from the game yesterday, so we asked you, our loyal Goal readers, to vote for your most memorable moment from the 38-year-old's glittering career.

Despite strong competition, his free-kick against Greece that sealed England's place at the 2002 World Cup has been decided as the most memorable moment from the former Three Lions captain, with a landslide 48.4 per cent of the vote.

The only other memory which came close was his wonder-goal from the halfway line against Wimbledon in 1996, which took 24.3%.

Other results included the good: donating his PSG pay to charity (6.9%), the bad: getting sent off in the 1998 world cup (6.6%) and… marrying Posh Spice (6%).

Memorable moments which didn't receive quite as many of your votes included Carrying the Olympic torch during the London 2012 opening ceremony (2.2%), and netting a penalty against Argentina at the 2002 World Cup (1.9%).

Interestingly, becoming the first Englishman to score at three consecutive World Cups received 1.7%, scoring on his Real Madrid debut took 1.2%, and finally getting a standing ovation in his final LA Galaxy appearance got a less memorable 0.5% of the vote.
