Beckham hoping to finish Galaxy season with title



CARSON, Calif. (AP) — David Beckham has reached the grand finale of his five-year Hollywood saga.

The English superstar will play for his first Major League Soccer championship on Sunday with the Los Angeles Galaxy, hoping to lift the MLS Cup alongside Landon Donovan in vindication of his groundbreaking American experiment.

After posting his best season stateside during the Galaxy’s dominant campaign, the midfielder needs just one more victory to earn something he didn’t even realize he wanted when he moved to Los Angeles amid all that fanfare in 2007.
