Beckham in Khayelitsha

International football icon David Beckham joined South African soccer star Lucas Radebe at the Ikhusi Pre Primary school in Khayelitsha, just outside Cape Town, to promote the football charity, Coaching For Hope.

Coaching For Hope trains young adults to teach local children both life skills and football skills. Beckham and Radebe came to the township with little fanfare to talk to the children, answer their questions and kick a ball around with the young soccer players. They both spoke about the importance of having a coach who is passionate about the game and gave examples of both the highlights and hard times in their careers, playing football at the highest international levels.
