David Beckham arrived in Beijing today to attend a junior football event with students at a middle school. David is on a five-day visit to China at the invitation of the China Football Association as its first international ambassador. The former star of the LA Galaxy took to the stage during a news conference to accept his new role and a medal of honor, and also to address the infamous match-fixing scandals of China's football league, saying it doesn't concern him. David also mentioned he hasn't ruled out playing for China professionally someday, then tucked in his tie and hit the field for an impromptu scrimmage with a few young players. The trip comes just after his stay in Berlin, where he launched his H&M underwear line.
