Youngsters learn how to bend it with Beckham

David Beckham passed on priceless footballing advice to thousands of young fans yesterday in Auckland. 6,500 were in the stands at Mt Smart Stadium to join Becks and the LA Galaxy in drills at a training session.

At one stage, during heading practice, Beckham bent down to Jemma, the youngest of the group, and whispered something in her ear.  It seemed to work because, having just missed a header attempt, she made firm contact with the next one.  Jemma later said that David's advice to her was "keep your eye on the ball."
