LA Galaxy star David Beckham feels victory over the Colorado Rapids will boost team spirit around the camp.

Beckham agreed it could have a galvanizing effect on the team.

"We saw it with Chelsea and Barcelona the other night, it happens," he told the Galaxy website, referring to the UEFA Champions League semifinal in which Chelsea eliminated the Spanish giants despite playing a man down for nearly an hour. "You have a player go off or a decision like that the other night go against you and it comes out the way it did, it can definitely spike a team up and push it into a different level.

"We'll see if it brings us together a bit more."
