The Snapshot: David Beckham loses his head against Chivas USA


24th, August 2007


David Beckham continued clocking up air miles by arriving in LA-LA land yesterday afternoon, after playing 90 minutes at Wembley, and then being named in the starting line-up half an hour before his team’s match against Chivas USA.
He couldn’t do anything to prevent a 3-0 defeat against the Galaxy’s local rivals with a subdued performance that produced only two shots – both off target. And, it all seemed too much when he was involved in an ugly set to in the 48th minute…ooh, someone’s tired!
Even his optimistic US employers are now starting to concede that Beckham’s double life is showing signs of strain. “I’m not going to deny there comes a point when your body can’t do it any more,” Alexi Lalas told BBC Sport.
