He added: "I've been lucky to win trophies and play in some incredible teams but it's special to get an Award from your fellow players. I wouldn't have fulfilled my dreams if it wasn't for my family so it's always nice when they can share an Award as well... #PFAAwards." David has managed to get an impressive 115 caps for England, he also captained the team at the 2002 and 2006 World Cup finals.

David took to his Instagram page to praise his wife, writing: "Today was a special day, this young lady was awarded an OBE and as a family we couldn't be prouder...
