Becks had the honor of presenting the Lifetime Achievement Award to 67-year-old Brazilian soccer legend Pele (born Edson Arantes Do Nascimento).

“For me to be here to present this to the greatest sportsmen of all time, I feel particularly honored,” the Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder said. “This absolutely is a highlight moment for me.”

Added Becks, “Soccer is a magical game. I’m very confident fans here in America will continue to see that. There’s no reason they can’t be as passionate about soccer as they are about every other sport here.”

    He’s dreaming if he seriously believes Americans will EVER “take” to soccer… he and his over-indulgent wifey need to head on back across the pond, can’t imagine he is very happy over here when obviously he lives and breathes the “beautiful game”…
