During his first visit to Australia, Beckham met with young AFL and Collingwood Football Club star Dale Thomas[*1] in Sydney. Thomas gave the soccer star some tips on kicking a goal with the oval shaped Sherrin.
Suffice to say that while Beckham can certainly bend the round ball as shown in the match against Sydney FC, his effort with the oval variety was not as spectacular, though good on him for trying. You can see pictures of Beckham kicking a footy on the Herald Sun's photo gallery[*2] .
