In 1998, FourFourTwo Predicted What David Beckham Would Look Like By 2020

David Beckham is a bit of a catch, isn't he?


The former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder was voted 'The Sexiest Man Alive' by People Magazine in 2015 because, well, just look at the bloke.

For decades, Beckham has successfully won the hearts of a global audience, not only for his talent on the football pitch, but for his good-natured, humble attitude off it.

I mean, this was his response to being named 'The Sexiest Man Alive' by People Magazine in 2015.

"I never feel that I'm an attractive, sexy person.

"I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and look and feel good, but I don't ever think of myself that way."

But Becks' striking good looks, and his teeth for that matter, were supposed to deteriorate over time, according to an incredible snippet from a 1998 edition of FourFourTwo magazine.

While at a Car Boot sale, Twitter user Ian Walker stumbled across some old mags.

And as he was browsing through, a certain page predicting what David would look like in 2020 pique his interest.

Now a couple of years on from the mess that 2020 ended up being, it's fair to say the above prediction was not correct by any stretch of the imagination.

The former England captain now owns MLS franchise Inter Miami and remains involved in football.

Last week, he sent praise to Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse who moved closer to his Premier League free-kick record.

Beckham, a man of many styles over the years, still looks suave as ever at the ripe old age of 47 and we don't see that changing anytime soon.
