English footballer David Beckham will be coming to Nepal to play football as part of a funding campaign for UNICEF. English media have reported the free-kick maestro will play seven matches in seven continents in a period of seven days for a Unicef campaign hoping to raise funds for the UN body.
Besides Nepal, the former Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and LA Galaxy star will also play in Papua New Guinea, Buenos Aires, Djibouti, Miami and Antarctica and Old Trafford, the home of English football giants Manchester United, during a world tour to benefit Unicef.
The former England captain will be accompanied by a film crew making a 90-minute documentary. Beckham, a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador, launched his own fund for the charity earlier this year, naming it ‘7’. The last of the match will be at Old Trafford where Beckham will captain a Great British XI against Zinedine Zidane’s Rest of the World team. However, All Nepal Football Association officials said that they do not have any information regarding the former England Captain’s visit to Nepal.
