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.
