Former England captain David Beckham says nothing made him prouder than wearing the Three Lions on his chest.
Beckham, his country’s most capped outfield player, has won the European Cup, the Premier League title, The FA Cup, La Liga and the MLS Cup, but the highlight of his career is representing England at Wembley.
Amid The FA's 150th anniversary launch, he said: “I’d like to say congratulations to The FA for an amazing 150 years.
“It’s going to be a great year of football, as always. It’s been a real honour to have been part of it, so thank you very much and congratulations.
Beckham continued: “Football’s been a huge part of my life from a very young age.
"My early memories are getting up early on a Sunday morning with my mum and dad, both of them taking me to Sunday morning football with, first off, Ridgeway Rovers, then Brimsdown and then up to Manchester every single weekend.
“When I speak about playing for Manchester United, I speak about how proud I am to have achieved what I have achieved.
“When we speak about playing for England and wearing the Three Lions shirt in front of a full house at Wembley; it’s the proudest moment an English person can have, stepping out not just as an England player, but stepping out as captain of your country for me, it’s the proudest moment that I have had in my career.
“I’ve achieved so many things over my career, I’ve been very lucky and I’ve worked very hard to achieve what I have achieved with Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, [LA] Galaxy.
“But stepping out with England; there’s no prouder moment for me in my career than that."
