David Beckham was more excited by Eric Cantona’s reaction than his famous goal v Wimbledon

The official Manchester United Facebook page have produced a quality interview with David Beckham on that goal versus Wimbledon all the way back in 1996.

It was very much the goal that launched David Beckham into the public consciousness – after all Pele had tried and failed to lob the keeper from the halfway line in the 1970 World Cup.

Beckham claimed a glorious goal that will go down as one of the all-time greats and he talks on the video below about how he treasures the reaction of Eric Cantona more than the actual goal itself for Manchester United at Wimbledon.

This interview is very much in the mould of the recent documentary film The Class of 92 and will no doubt be enjoyed by Manchester United fans the world over.
