Footy friends William and David put their weight behind Team GB

30 JULY 2012 Spectators at Team GB's football match against the United Arab Emirates made it clear where their loyalties lay at the weekend by giving David Beckham a warm reception.

Many held aloft placards supporting the sports star, who was overlooked for the team.

He showed there were no hard feelings by turning out in support of his colleagues with his son, 13-year-old Brooklyn.



Next to him in the stands cheering the guys on, including Becks former team mater Ryan Giggs, was Prince William in his capacity as president of the FA.

David and William have become friendly during their years spent backing the bid and the Beckhams famously had a place in the pews at the royal wedding.
