David Beckham Was The Only LA Galaxy Player To Convert A Penalty In Their Penalty Shoot-Out

David Beckham was the only one of five Los Angeles Galaxy players to convert in a penalty shootout as Galaxy team lost to South Korea's FC Seoul in an exhibition game Saturday.

After the match ended 1-1, Seoul won 2-1 in the shootout thanks to four saves by goalkeeper Kim Ho-jun.

Every Beckham touch was applauded by the crowd that filled just half of the 65,000-capacity Seoul World Cup Stadium.

After just six minutes, Beckham was brought down by Lee Chung-young and the former England captain exchanged words with the young Korean winger.

In the 20th minute, Beckham set up the opening goal, floating a free-kick into the penalty area, where Alan Gordon slotted the ball past Kim from close range.

Seoul equalized 10 minutes later when Jung Jo-gook scored from the penalty spot.

Beckham was the first player up in the shootout and blasted his kick high into the net, but Kim wasn't beaten again.

It was the opening leg of the American team's pre-season East Asian tour. The Galaxy will play against Shanghai-Hong Kong United in Shanghai on Wednesday and then travel to play Hong Kong Union on March 9.
