The First Encounter When Two Worlds Collide
David and Victoria both reached the height of their careers in the mid-1990s. David was a rising soccer superstar, and Victoria was a member of Spice Girls.

Victoria, who was not a soccer fan, was attracted to David’s handsome appearance in magazines. The first time they met in 1997, at a soccer match, there was mutual attraction. This led to an impromptu contact and the start of their romance.

These initial sacrifices showed the depth of their relationship, and laid the foundation for a strong bond.
