To celebrate playing his 100th soccer game for England, David Beckham and wife Victoria Beckham chose to dine in Paris – at the same spot Eva Longoria and Tony Parker used for their wedding rehearsal dinner. Beckham's extended family were seated in the swanky Baccarat restaurant when the 32-year-old midfielder arrived late on Wednesday. The soccer star's three sons did not attend the midnight meal. Beckham is only the fifth Englishman ever to play 100 soccer games for his country. "When he walked in all the guests applauded his achievement," says a restaurant source. "David was happy and smiling even though the England team lost the game to France" ... In celebration, the Beckham clan dined on a nouvelle cuisine set menu at the eatery in Place des Etats-Unis. "They didn't have a champagne toast but Baccarat presented David with a cake at the end of the meal," says the source. "It was in the shape of a soccer ball and decorated with sparklers." The Beckhams were then due to return home to America in preparation for a Saturday match in Denver for his Los Angeles Galaxy.
Again, congrats to Becks on this latest achievement but the time for celebratin' is over ... Becks has to get back to work here in the US as the MLS soccer season kicks off this weekend. The LA Galaxy takes on the Colorado Rapids tomorrow evening at 6pm in Colorado with the home opener to take place on April 3. Becks still has a long way to go to win accolades of this nature in the US of A so he really needs to really buckle down and get to work. [Source]
