Beckham delighted to clinch three vital points with LA Galaxy
The Galaxy defeated reigning MLS Cup winners Colorado Rapids 1-0 at The Home Depot Center on Friday, thanks to Landon Donovan's 36th minute strike, to move clear of second-placed Seattle Sounders and Beckham highlighted the importance of such a victory following the match.
"It was big game for us tonight. Obviously Colorado wanted to come in here and give us a hard game so I think it was important that we were on top of our game, and most of the game we were," he said.
"I think we got a bit sloppy with our passing, but overall I think it was an important three points."
