After two decades as a soccer player, David Beckham has decided to hang up his cleats. He's currently been playing for Paris St. Germain Football Club in France, but has declined to come back for another season because he feels now is the right time to call it quits. The 38-year-old said in a statement, "To this day, one of my proudest achievements is captaining my country. I knew every time I wore the Three Lions shirt, I was not only following in a line of great players, I was also representing every fan that cared passionately about their country."
