Beckham Buries an Old Nightmare, Plays First Full Game for PSG

MOST COMMENTED

Paris-Saint Germain drew 2-2 away to St. Etienne on Sunday, as David Beckham played his first full game in Ligue 1. The location of his first full league appearance is somewhat ironic given that the last time Beckham played at the Geoffroy Guichard Stadium he was dismissed for kicking out at Diego Simeone in an infamous 2-2 draw between England and Argentina in the Round of 16 at the 1998 World Cup, which the South American team won on penalties.

Even so, Beckham’s return to St. Etienne could hardly be described as a happy one, given the result, which saw PSG lose a 2-0 lead, although the 37-year-old played well, completing more passes (75) than his other teammates. Two minutes from time, Beckham had a chance to win the game with a trademark free kick, but it just curled wide.

Despite the draw, PSG managed to extend its lead at the top of Ligue 1 to five points, as earlier in the weekend second-place Lyon suffered a heavy loss to Bastia, and third-place Marseille could only draw at home to Ajaccio.
