Lego-ldenballs: Beckham's career as you've never seen it before

He graced World Cups and some of the biggest leagues on the planet, and now a tribute has been made to the former England captain ...through LEGO
Six Premier League titles, La Liga, Ligue 1, MLS Cup and Champions League winner, David Beckham is one of the most decorated English footballers of all time.

So what would be a fitting tribute to the man affectionately named, Goldenballs? A LEGO animation, of course!

Japanese animators Mori Pictures has paid homage to some of Beckham's most memorable career moments, his red card against Argentina, the 1999 Champions League final, and THAT free kick against Greece.

"I missed him when I heard the news that he decided to retire," Mori Pictures reflected. "So, I made the movie to express my respect and tell him 'thank you so much for great memories'."

"He is a legend player, and also a great man."

So there you have it, Lego-ldenballs in all his glory! A fitting tribute to the former Manchester United, Real Madrid and England star. Click the image to watch the video.
