David Beckham admits he is surprised by his recent goal scoring run for LA Galaxy.

The veteran English midfielder netted his sixth goal in his last nine outings for the club with an 80th minute free-kick in the 2-0 win over Vancouver Whitecaps on the weekend.

Beckham revelled in the trademark dead ball finish and admitted that he was happy with his recent run of goals.

"I knew if I put it in the corner, the 'keeper wasn't getting there, simple as that," Beckham said. "And I hit it well. I knew once I hit it and I caught it well, it was going in.

"I'm not usually scoring that many, but I'll take it."
