David Beckham Scores 2 In Charity Match

In front of England manager Steve McClaren, David Beckham scored 2 goals in the LA Galaxy Charity match against Hollywood United. The end result was Galaxy 12 Hollywood United 4.

Steve McClaren has been heavily criticized for flying to LA to see David Beckham in a charity game. It has been branded a "farcical" waste of time.

The Football Association told BBC Sport McClaren's visit was nothing out of the ordinary.

"Steve checks on the availability and fitness of all his players - it was a routine trip," said an FA spokesman.

In other news Frank Yallop has resigned as coach of the Galaxy after enduring a tough time this season.

Frank was constantly under the spotlight after the arrival of Becks in the summer.

But the England star's impact was limited because of injuries and Galaxy’s season fizzled out as they failed to make the play-offs.

Yallop is understood to have left to return to coach San Jose Earthquakes.

even if it was a supposedly pointless game, I hope McClaren saw what he wanted to see. Glad to see Becks play for a good cause. I'm sure he wouldn't have it any other way.

was at the game last night against Hollywood FC! The game was great, atmosphere was great and every time Beckham touched the ball or scored, the crowd was going nuts!

Don't have any pics, because they didn't let me take my professional camera in! :(

But loved watching him play!

Ruby you are so lucky.

I am going to get myself to LA to see him play next season

FC you should definitely come to LA for the next season and you should let me know, we should team up and go! The Home Depot Center is about 35-45 drive from my place.

What I enjoyed most about the game was that I paid $20 for the ticket and we could sit anywhere we wanted. My friend and I sat all the way up front. Couldn't ask for a better deal.
