Football as we all know it changed in a massive way on May 18, 2013. As many folks out there remember, that's when David Beckham said goodbye, playing in his last game ever.
That contest came with PSG, the team he signed a five-month loan deal with to close out his career. On Monday morning, Paris Saint-Germain dropped an amazing tribute video on Twitter to honor the English legend.

Anyone chopping onions in the room? That's as emotional as it gets. Saying goodbye to the sport is hard for anyone, but for fans, it's equally tough seeing an idol hang up his cleats. Such was the case with Beckham.
While he'll be remembered for his days with Manchester United and the England national team, don't forget about his short time with PSG. Beckham made his return to Europe after a stint in the USA with the LA Galaxy.
While in France, Beckham appeared in 10 games for PSG, but helped the club secure the Ligue 1 title in 2013. In his final game, Beckham was named team captain for his goodbye match against Brest. Beckham was on the field for 80 minutes before being subbed off.
As you can see in the video above, he was fighting back tears as he made his exit. His final moments in action is something no one can ever forget. The game, truly, has never been the same without Beckham. The fact that he closed his career with PSG is something supporters will cherish forever.
