Beckham's debut nets a goal and a hug for Ibra

[VIDEO PICK: BeckCam] David Beckham's deft chip helped Zlatan Ibrahimovic seal a 2-0 victory for Paris Saint-Germain over its rival Marseille in Paris, where a hug by Beckham highlighted his PSG debut.

This victory kept PSG’s three-point lead on Lyon in France, and increased its margin over Marseille to eight.

Beckham’s last Champions League appearance came in 2010 at Manchester United for AC Milan while on loan from the LA Galaxy. Valencia visits Paris for a UCL return with PSG next week, and this debut lends credence to the 37-year-old’s aspirations to return.

Canal+ named this shot of the world’s most photographed athlete hugging Ibrahimovic amid the snow in Paris “image of the night."

Beckham came on in the 76th minute for Javier Pastore, and this stoppage time flick sent Jeremy Menez into the area, where a goal by France’s top scorer saw a buoyant Beckham take a ride on the Zlatan express.

Clearly a man who doesn't need the Oscars' red carpet to make an entrance ...

    Becks gives hopes to all those over 40s with big bellys and receding hair lines that you can still play this game at any age ! People may hate the glamor boy but he is a professional and a footballer whose love for the game can't be denied. Well done Becks !

    The Beautiful Game is based on trapping, passing, seeing the field, and intelligence. Given his skills, Besks may be able to play when he's 50. Given the near total lack of those skills, the USMNT plays an ugly game, best compared to the "Running of the Bulls." Pray for Stu Holden's complete recovery. And Tab Ramos's U20 team shows moments of hope.
