David Beckham Injured In LA Galaxy Win


David Beckham set up a goal but the left the action early with a minor injury as Los Angeles Galaxy eased to a comfortable 3-0 victory over Shanghai-Hong Kong United in Shanghai.

Carlos Ruiz scored all three goals for the MLS side to secure their first victory of their Asian tour in their second match in the Far East.

Beckham provided the pass for the opening goal in first half injury time, clipping an inviting cross to Ruiz who headed beyond goalkeeper Gu Chao.

The England midfielder was substituted in the 70th minute as a precaution after he had taken a knock to his right thigh, though the injury is not serious, before Ruiz scored twice in the last 11 minutes.

David had an ice pack on his knee when he was on the bench.

"I got a kick in my leg the first half just in my thigh, and I felt it start stiffening up during the second half, so obviously the manager decided to bring me off," Beckham said in post match press conference.

"It's only precautionary... it's nothing serious," he said, adding that he would be the injury he described as a dead leg would be fine in a couple of days".

"It was nice to win the game,"
admitted Beckham.

"I think we played very well and we played good football. We had a good time here."


After the match LA Galaxy were presented with a trophy.
