A year ago, if you’d asked any sports fan in the United States who their favorite player was in Major League Soccer, many would have said “David Beckham”, as our most stylish across-the-pond import has done much to elevate the awareness of soccer/football/futbol here in the US over the past four to five years.
Now, of course, when asked that same question, sports fans will undoubtedly shout “Landon Donovan” from the depths of their heart, after his late-game heroics in South Africa this summer.
As David Beckham returned to practice with Landon Donovan and his LA Galaxy teammates on Wednesday, still recovering from an achilles tendon injury that has kept him sidelined for months, we want to show him some much deserved love.
So, welcome back to Los Angeles, Sir David. And congratulations for being named StylePantry’s Most Stylish Soccer Player. He’s a guy’s guy, not afraid to rock the simple plaid flannel and trucker hat, or white v-neck and jeans, but also has no problem deftly switching to a fashionable suit and fine footwear.
Go ahead and take a look at some of his looks over the years below, and let us know if you agree with our decision.
