Beckham - 100, England - 0

Yesterday evening at Le Stade de France in Paris, France, David Beckham became only the 5th man to reach the 100th cap mark with the English national soccer team. Running around the field in his red classic number 7 jersey, a pair of specially made golden soccer boots and a pair of skimpy white shorts that let his tiny white Armani Underwear briefs show thru, Becks reached the professional mark that has alluded him for the past few months ... but no more, David Beckham has finally reached his 100th cap. Here are a few pics of Becks on the field during yesterday's game:

Soccer star David Beckham represented the England national soccer team Wednesday night for the 100th time, becoming only the fifth player ever to reach the triple figure. Beckham, 32, took to the field in Paris at the beginning of the game around 9 p.m. local time, making his 100th appearance for England. Beckham wore golden boots to mark the game, which was against France. "David was so excited to play," a close pal tells PEOPLE. "He is still enthusiastic and has a great passion for playing for his country." Around 38 minutes into the match Beckham received a yellow card warning for an infraction against the French team. At 62 minutes, with France leading 1-0, Beckham and his golden boots were substituted by the team manager. At the end of the game, which France won 1-0, Beckham came back out onto the field to applaud the fans. "Only four players have ever achieved this playing milestone before," says the pal. "It's an historic moment becoming the fifth English player to do it. It's an incredible honor."

Aww ... well, it sucks that England had to lose the game but we're all still very happy for Becks and his latest accomplishment. Speaking to the press after the game, Becks explained what yesterday's game meant to him:

"My parents are here, my granny is watching back home, my sister, my sons and my wife are also here. I'm very proud. Reaching 100 caps doesn't happen every day but, like I said before the game, I am hoping it is not 100 and out. I want to carry on playing for my country. Having my family and all the fans there was incredible and to get the reception I did from both sets of fans when I came off was amazing. I'm very proud of that because, if there was another place apart from Wembley where I would like to get to 100 caps then it would've been here in Paris. It is where (Zinedine) Zidane played and I have also got a house in France and love the country. I enjoyed the hour I played and the most important thing for me tonight was proving my fitness. I felt I did that. I felt very fresh and a lot better than I thought I would. As much as you work hard in pre-season, nothing is better than playing games. I've played under Fabio Capello before [at Real Madrid] and he knows what I am like as a player. From that point of view I don't have to prove anything - but proving my fitness was the biggest thing. To go over the 100 mark is a proud moment. To be up there with Bobby Moore, Bobby Charlton, Billy Wright and Peter Shilton, I'm honoured to be in that company.

Yes this is quite an accomplishment ... I imagine that the entire Beckham family was very excited to be in the hiz to show their support ... [Source, Source]

... tho you wouldn't really know it by looking at them. Vicki B., the Beckham boys and Becks's immediate family filled an executive box in the Parisian stadium yesterday lookin' totally unimpressed and generally pretty bored and miserable:

But I'm sure they were very happy and very proud of our dear Becks ... on the inside ;) In any event, Becks should be congratulated on reaching the 100th cap mark. Next up for David Beckham is the opening game of the new LA Galaxy soccer season which takes place here at home at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA this Saturday. No rest for the weary ... or the accomplished. [Source]
