Things just keep getting better for David Beckham as it was confirmed today that he will be representing the European All-Star XI team which will play United in a jubilee match being staged to mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the European Common Market, the forerunner of the European Union, and United’s 50 years of European competition.

Becks of course has made many returns to Old Trafford with his days with the national team but this game (March 13th) will be his first ever against Man Utd after leaving for Real Madrid in 2003.

Beckham said: ‘I’m happy to know I’m going to play on March 13th. It will be something special to go back to Old Trafford and I’m really looking forward to it.’
