David Beckham scores on Real Madrid return

Almost inevitably, David Beckham scored on his return to the Real Madrid starting lineup following Fabio Capello’s U-turn over his prospects for the rest of the season. The Real coach went back on his vow to never play Beckham again before his move to LA Galaxy, and the change of heart paid off as the former England skipper found the net against Real Sociedad. The goal was a trademark free kick, although not one of his prettier efforts. The Mirror is now tipping Becks to become a central figure in the remainder of Real’s season.

    Good. Maybe they’ll decide to keep him. :P
    The rotten thing about him playing for the Evil Los Angeles Galaxy is that, as a DC United fan, I won’t be able to properly appreciate those goals anymore.

    Will you be pleased to see Becks in MLS, Human, or just disappointed to see him at LA?!

    Maybe all those talks with Tom Cruise are helping him

    Good to see Becks make Capello look like a jackass in big glasses.
