David Beckham Secures A Post-Soccer Future In Field Security With This Fan Takedown

English soccer clubs sometimes play "testimonials," in which they bring back their older stars for a friendly match of former rivals. Like parades or bowling parties, it's a nice way to make the old folk feel appreciated for still being around. Yesterday, with Man United playing Juventus in the Gary Neville Testimonial, 36-year-old not-quite-has-been David Beckham showed his worth by capturing a young fan who'd run onto the pitch and then delivering a trademark corner kick as the kid got cuffed behind him.

He's still got it, and by "it" all we really mean is functioning legs.
