David Beckham welled up as he was substituted late on into LA Galaxy's MLS Cup final victory over Houston Dynamo.

The Galaxy came from behind to give Beckham a winning farewell to his career in the United States with a 3-1 victory over the Houston Dynamo in the MLS Cup final.

Calen Carr's goal shortly before the interval gave the Texas team the lead at California's Home Depot Center.

However, Omar Gonzalez equalised on the hour and five minutes later captain Landon Donovan converted from the penalty spot, before Robbie Keane wrapped up the win in injury time - also from the spot.

Immediately afterwards Beckham was substituted, having appeared to be shedding a tear, leaving the field to rapturous applause.

The 37-year-old former Manchester United and Real Madrid star has yet to confirm his next destination, though he has a variety of contract offers.
