David Beckham says the thing he misses most about England is the food.
The soccer star - who moved to America to play for Los Angeles Galaxy last year after signing a five-year deal worth a reputed £128 million - yearns for roast dinners, a traditional Sunday meal comprised of oven-cooked meat and vegetables.
David says wife Victoria satisfies his craving by cooking the meal for him and their sons, nine-year-old Brooklyn, five-year-old Romeo and Cruz, three.
He said: "I still love Sunday dinners. Victoria cooked one for the boys the other day but I was away. I was quite jealous. I also miss English pubs - having a good lager shandy and a Sunday lunch while watching the football [soccer]."
David also revealed he struggles to understand his American team mates.
The 33-year-old says he is settling into his new life well, but has had some difficulty communicating with his new colleagues.
He said in an interview with Britain's The Sun newspaper: "I sometimes say something and my team mates don't understand me. Then they say things and I don't have a clue what they are going on about.
"The other day one of them said they had a raspberry, or it may have been strawberry. I can't remember. They were talking about a grass burn! I couldn't get my head around that one."
