After the final whistle, teammates hoisted Beckham off the ground and repeatedly tossed him in the air.

"To end my career in front of a crowd like that, with players like that, it’s very special," Beckham said.

The club had a fireworks show and a trophy ceremony after that game. Draped in an English flag, Beckham reveled in the moment as he sprinted onto the stage erected in the middle of the field.

Somehow, Beckham could be back soon in the French capital, but with a different uniform.

PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi said last week that he is negotiating with Beckham, hoping the former England captain will work with the French club after retirement, possibly in an ambassador’s role.

"He’s very interested to continue being involved with the big project of Paris Saint-Germain," Al-Khelaifi said. "He believes in the project, he believes in the club, he loves the club."
