Beckham celebrates after putting the ball in the back of the net
It finally happened! David Beckham has finally produced for the LA Galaxy in a game that will silence the critics for at least a few days.
Beckham scored twice, one off his legendary free kicks, and another of a long range effort from outside the penalty area to secure a 2-2 draw for the Galaxy against Real Salt Lake.
In front of a record setting crowd in Utah, Beckham shot two lasers into the back of the net and singlehandedly kept the Galaxy in the game.

"It was a good game in the end," Beckham said. "I think that we started off terrible the first 20 minutes. We didn't get close enough to them as a team. We looked scared of them. And then a couple of tackles started going in, and we livened up. We got ourselves back into the game."
Real scored two goals in the first 20 minutes, from Edgar Fabian Espindola and Kenny Duechar, but LA started to mesh after that and are sitting in second place, 1 point behind FC Dallas, in the MLS Western Confrence. Things are looking good for Ruud Gullit and David Beckhams men as the season commences.
