Sporty Spice, she ain’t.

David Beckham tells BBC Radio 2 that his wife, Victoria (a.k.a. Posh Spice), plays backyard soccer with their three kids – Brooklyn, 8, Romeo, 5, and Cruz, 2. But it doesn’t sound like Victoria will be going pro any time soon.

In fact, she’s “not great at goalkeeping,” he says in the upcoming interview (previewed in Monday’s Daily Mirror).

Not that she doesn t try: “I’m constantly getting soccer balls kicked at me,” she recently told Larry King.

The true talent in the Beckham family? Eldest son Brooklyn. “He’s got a great strike on him, a great right foot,” the proud papa is quoted as saying. “And he kept the ball up 64 times. Pretty good for his age.”

The two-hour interview with Beckham, the British-born star of the L.A. Galaxy, will air on Christmas day following the Queen’s annual speech.
