Watch David Beckham As He Visits Troops in Afghanistan

David Beckham arrived in Afghanistan on Friday to visit British troops, where he travelled to Camp Bastion in Helmand Province and greeted soldiers coming back from the frontline. The sexy Brit said that he'd wanted to make the trip "for years" but his football schedule had meant that he had been unable to go. Now that he's injured he said he's been "given the chance to do things I always wanted to do". David was shown around, given demonstrations of equipment and even had a short kickabout, scoring a penalty in a makeshift goal. He said: "These guys are the bravest people that I've ever met and it really is, it truly is, an honour to be here."
