Becks scared by overzealous fans pitch invasion!June 9th, 2008 - 4:23 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, June 9 (ANI): Football ace David Beckham was astonished when an overzealous fan suddenly entered the field, and hugged him during a match for LA Galaxy on Saturday.
It all happened when the former England captain was playing against the Colorado Rapids.
Security people quickly tacked the black-shirted man, and escorted him off the grass, reports Contactmusic.
Beckham himself admitted being shocked to see the intruder approaching him in the second half, with the Galaxy battling to hold a 3-1 lead.
I was concerned when I first saw him because he didnt have a smile on his face and he didnt have a Galaxy shirt on. I didnt know if he was going to give me a hug or something else, British tabloid The Sun quoted him as saying.
“Luckily he just wanted to give me a high-five and that was the end of it, the footballer added.
However, despite red cards sending two players off the field and the act of intrusion by a fan, Beckhams team managed to achieve a 3-2 victory. (ANI)
