Galaxy victory a nice return for Beckham

Galaxy victory a nice return for Beckham

Alvaro Pires and Ely Allen scored their first Major League Soccer goals on Saturday as the Los Angeles Galaxy welcomed David Beckham back from international duty with a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Rapids.
Edson Buddle also scored for the Galaxy, who were without leading scorer Landon Donovan but still overtook the Rapids for first place in the MLS Western Conference standings.
Beckham returned after a two-week absence to play in two England victories, wearing the captain's armband in last Sunday's friendly at Trinidad and Tobago, which they won 3-0.
Five days earlier, England defeated the United States 2-0 in a friendly in London.
"It's always nice to go home," Beckham said. "We had two important games, two good performances and two good wins."
He wasted no time making his presence felt Saturday, helping the Galaxy open the scoring in the fourth minute when he sent a free kick from the right into the penalty area from which Pires scored.
