My friend Raoul E. took this photo of soccer star David Beckham at the NAIA yesterday. As expected, he looked so fit and handsome although it wasn’t clear how he took to walking in one of the world’s worst airports 🙂 Reports said Beckham and his teammates from Los Angeles Galaxy who arrived in a chartered flight were extended the usual courtesies accorded to VIP guests by NAIA management. However, some members of the team proved to be a bit too brash and were made to wait in their bus while being cleared through immigration. Afterwards, they were promptly driven to the Makati Shang-ri La Hotel which is presumed to be their residence for the next few days.
Beckham, together with his fellow players from LA Galaxy Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan, will play in a goodwill match with the Philippine Azkals at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex tomorrow, Dec. 3. There will also be a practice scheduled at 1:30 p.m. today and a football clinic but it’s not sure if the heavily-guarded Beckham, one of the richest athletes in the world, will participate.
Beckham and the LA Galaxy team had just come from another goodwill game in Indonesia and will proceed to Australia next.
