LA Galaxy 2 FC Toronto 0

Beckham scores and makes a second in an emphatic win over FC Toronto, taking The Galaxy to 2nd in the Western Conference with a game in hand.
LA's first came in the 8th minute when Beckham skipped through defenders and slotted the ball away from the edge of the box. Beckham was an awesome presence for the entire game having battled and provided without taking a break. Having spurned a chance in front of goal on 80 minutes eventually he provided the second in the 83rd minute when he took the ball off Toronto on the right wing and cut back to Donovan who slipped it to Buddle. Buddle took it on the volley for a great finish to a clean and crisp move.
This was a determined performance from the player needing to prove his worth to the England manager in the run up to 2010, and puts LA back on track for a chance to get to the elusive play-offs.
Credit also goes to Ricketts in the LA goal, who recovered from the trauma of last week's game and put in the sort of performance we have come to expect.
