D-Becks scores against FC Dallas, with a little help from Landon Donovan and a lot of help from an incompetent/blind referee:
You think that might be a foul by Landy? Yeah, could be. Last time I checked, shoving your opponent off the ball wasn’t really allowed. Oops. Good of the commentators to spot the foul too.
Beckham’s well-taken equaliser kick-started a Galaxy fightback that ended in a 2-1 win, and with it the Galaxy won the Supporter’s Shield, awarded to the top points-scoring team in each MLS regular season.
It’s the first trophy the Galaxy have won since Beckham’s arrival in 2007, and the club’s first Supporter’s Shield triumph in almost a decade. About time.
The Galaxy now go into the playoffs as the top-seeded team in the Western Conference. Their first playoff match-up is against Seattle Sounders, with the first leg played in Seattle this Sunday (8pm KO ET).
