David Beckham won his 101st cap for his appearance against the USA in England's friendly at Wembley last night, having been presented with a golden cap from Sir Bobby Charltan just before the match to mark the 100th cap he won against France back in March. Although Becks didn't score we won 2-0 with goals from John Terry (from a Beckham free-kick) and Steven Gerrard. The accolades keep coming for Becks on and off the pitch — in a survey of business leaders released today, David was voted most influential man in sport (while Victoria was voted third most influential woman in entertainment). In a post-match interview with the BBC about the golden cap, David proved he was still modest as ever. Laughing, he said:
"It was heavy actually. I was gonna lift it up, but when I picked it up I was like 'Oh my God'... I was trying to lift it up but it just wouldn't lift!"
I think I love David Beckham more and more each day!
