Beckham shines in psg’s win

David Beckham made an immediate impression on his Paris Saint-Germain debut in the Ligue 1 leaders’ clash against arch-rivals Marseille on Sunday with a cheeky piece of skill creating the second goal in a 2-0 win. The former England captain was named among the substitutes for ‘Le Classique’ before eventually entering the fray 15 minutes from time as he featured in Carlo Ancelotti’s plans for the first time since his feted arrival at the end of January. Beckham was fourth off the PSG team bus as it arrived at the 48,000-capacity Parc des Princes in the south-west of the city on Sunday evening with cameras focussed on his every step in the French capital. The midfielder, sporting a wide grin, then emerged from the home changing room for the pre-match warm-up displaying typical British grit as one of just a handful of players without a hat or jogging trousers despite the freezing, snowy conditions. Beckham, who did his Paris cause no harm by agreeing to donate his estimated 800,000-euro ($1 million) monthly salary to a children’s charity, admitted he was relishing the prospect of his latest adventure. ‘The league is full of talented players and teams, and it is pretty close at the top just now. It’s a difficult league. I know it will be a challenge but it is one I’m really looking forward to.’
