Los Angeles Galaxy 2-1 Portland Timbers: David Beckham 19’, 24’
Two goals in six minutes. It’s a new game in Portland, as a 19th minute scorcher from David Beckham followed by a 24th minute free kick has made it 2-1 between the Los Angeles Galaxy and Portland Timbers
The target for Gavin Wilkinson’s Timbers is to secure 45 points for the remainder of the year in order to remain in the running for a playoff spot. More than 20 minutes in, it doesn’t look like they could be even on their way to their first
Portland have dominated possession so far this match, but in the 13th minute, a threatening cross from Los Angeles was wasted due to Sean Franklin’s inability to connect. Kris Boyd, the hero so far this match, nearly found someone on the transition a minute later.
A chance for Hector Jimenez in the 18th minute sailed wide left, but a minute later, Robbie Keane was able to feed Beckham for a possible Goal of the Week selection.
Five minutes later, a set piece from Beckham was converted in the top right corner to make it 2-1.
