Beckham will retire TONIGHT wearing specially-designed adidas shoes: Report

David Beckham will finally call it a career tonight — instead of next week — after Paris Saint-German's final home game of the season against Brest. The former Manchester United and Real Madrid international soccer star announced his retirement from the game on Thursday and it was thought initially that Beckham would bow out next weekend in PSG's final game of the season at Lorient. But sources close to the superstar have confirmed that this evening's game in the French capital will in fact be his last, according to

To celebrate the special occasion, Beckham's family are set to join him at the Parc des Princes and see him start for Carlo Ancelotti's Ligue 1 champions.

And Becks will hang up his cleats in style. The 38-year-old will say his farewell in specially-designed patriotic red, white and blue shoes with the names of his children and initials of his Victoria emblazoned on them.

Every aspect of the new Predator Lethal Zone boots were personalized by Beckham on the website, proudly paying homage to his kids and nationality.

Beckham captained the England team 155 times and is considered one of the main forces which helped London secure the 2012 Olympics.  He specifically chose the red, white and blue colors to represent the Union Jack, with the flag embossed on the heel.

The boots also feature the names of his four children - Romeo, Brooklyn, Cruz and Harper as well as the shirt numbers from his playing career: 7, 23 and 32

"This is truly a special moment for me and I'm happy that my longest serving partner, adidas was able to work with me to commemorate the moment," Beckham said about the special shoes."'What I really wanted to come across was the passion I had playing for my country and the pride that gave me."

The trailblazing soccer star —  who also played AC Milan and Los Angeles Galaxy — is now set to continue his ambassadorial duties with a variety of organizations, which include Sky Sports, adidas, Unicef and promoting football in China.

"Nothing will ever completely replace playing the game I love, however I feel like I'm starting a new adventure and I'm genuinely excited about what lies ahead.

"I'm fortunate to have been given many opportunities throughout my career and now I feel it's my time to give back."

Having relocated from Los Angeles in January, the man who inspired a movie and posed in his knickers, Beckham is now expected to set up a permanent home in London with his wife Victoria and children. 

It seems only right for England's biggest sports export.
