Beckham back with Galaxy
Adjust font size:

Despite his injury, world-fame soccer star David Beckham played with the Los Angeles Galaxy Thursday night in the 68th minute of its Major League Soccer game against the New York Red Bulls.

With Beckham's presence, Galaxy, however, did not manage to win the game in Carson, outside Los Angeles. The game tied with 1-1.

Beckham last played Aug. 29 when he suffered a right knee sprain in the SuperLiga final against Pachuca of Mexico.

Beckham, 32, made his debut with the Galaxy July 21 amid one of the greatest promotional buildups in American sports history. However, an ankle injury sustained June 6 while playing for England in a Euro 2008 qualifying game against Estonia forced him to miss five of the next six games, creating fan disappointment and raising questions about the team's credibility about its announcements about Beckham's health.

Beckham had played six games with the Galaxy in various competitions before Thursday's game, scoring one goal and assisting on three others. The Galaxy lost five of the six games.
