Victoria Beckham's soccer ace husband David Beckham has travelled to America to promote his new soccer academy.

Opening this autumn (05) in Southern California, the David Beckham Soccer Academy will give youngsters the opportunity to hone their skills in the popular sport.

Real Madrid player Beckham says, "(The centre will give children) the chance to get off the streets and have fun and believe in their ability. Kids are my life."

And the British sportsman admits that he doesn't need to promote the sport to his own young sons, explaining, "They sleep in their soccer kits, that's how much they love the game already."
