VIDEO: Watch David Beckham roll back the years in star-studded charity match

Simon Lloyd

David Beckham was back in action again on Friday, taking to the field for a special friendly match in Kuwait.

The former England captain lined up alongside a host of other stars as an International XI side took on a Kuwait XI to mark the opening of a new 60,000 seater stadium.

Beckham was joined by his former Manchester United team-mate, Dwight Yorke, along with the likes of Alessandro Nesta, Alessandro Del Piero, Luis Figo, Roberto Pires and Jamie Carragher.

And it didn’t take Beckham long to get back to his old tricks, providing assists for Figo and Pires.

Unfortunately for Beckham, the Kuwait XI ran out 4-2 winners.

The goal of the game came thanks to a brilliant chip which left former Arsenal goalkepper Jens Lehmann stranded.
