David Beckham's fine form since Olympic omission continues
Friday 20 July 2012
David Beckham continued his fine form since being omitted from Great Britain's Olympic squad by scoring one goal and setting up another as the LA Galaxy fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Vancouver Whitecaps.
Having scored twice in Galaxy's last game – a 35-yard strike and a trademark free-kick – against Portland Timbers, the former England captain kept his scoring run going by drilling the ball in from just outside the box. "It's always nice to get a goal. I've scored a couple in the last few games, and it's been enjoyable because I'm not used to it," said Beckham.
