New England Revolution 0 LA Galaxy 1

Beckham starts in his now customary central midfield role, occasionally popping up on the left-wing, often making a 'guest appearance' in the back four. The Galaxy started well and established a bit of a foothold in the match, but The Revolution were proving dangerous on the break on a couple of occasions. Neither keeper was troubled much in the first half although Ricketts had to run out to make amends for a short back-pass from a defender. LA hit the bar from a Beckham corner, although it bounced straight down the replay clearly showed that it didn't cross the line. The teams went in at half-time with no goals scored.

The Galaxy continue to have the edge over The Revolution in the second half, and after 24 mins a Beckham delivery from deep finds Lopez who glances the ball home with his head. Satisfying for Beckham who has just been booked for what looked to me like his first foul of the match which seems harsh.
The pressure continues and Beckham is substituted with 10 minutes to go. The Revs try hard to get back into the game, but LA look in control and manage to shut them out - the game ends 1-0 to The Galaxy, another good result on the road..
