International Football - Beckham fires Galaxy to title
David Beckham scored a goal to help fire his LA Galaxy side to Major League Soccer's Western Conference title.
Needing a victory in their final match of the regular season, Galaxy went behind after 22 minutes against FC Dallas.
Galaxy manager Bruce Arena paid tribute to 35-year-old Beckham, saying that the Englishman's inspirational display was his best of the season.
"I felt the last game was my best performance but if Bruce says that, then I will take that," Beckham told the LA Galaxy website.
"I'm just trying to get my match fitness back and in the last couple of games I felt really good, so I am happy that the manager thinks that about me."
Beckham will now lead his team-mates into the play-offs, with the Seattle Sounders first up.
