David Beckham Scores His 4th MLS Goal From 60 Yards


David Beckham and Landon Donovan contributed two of Galaxy's three second-half goals on Saturday as the Galaxy won 3-1 over the Kansas City Wizards.

Beckham's injury time insurance goal was his fourth of the season for the Galaxy, who moved to the top of the MLS Western Conference with their second straight victory.

The win marked the first time this season the Galaxy have put together back-to-back victories.

Beckham rounded off the triumph with a 60-yard shot into an empty net, which you can see in the video below.

Edson Buddle had given the Galaxy the lead in the 74th minute, slotting home a low shot off a feed from Donovan.

Claudio Lopez had opened the scoring for Kansas City in the 40th minute, and Donovan equalized with a penalty in the 54th after he was brought down by Tyson Wahl.


This goal is reminiscent of the goal David scored as a Manchester United player in August 1996. David scored from beyond the halfway line, with a long and accurate strike that caught Wimbledon goalkeeper Neil Sullivan off his line.


Here is that magic moment.
