LA Galaxy led to Western title by Beckham

LA Galaxy were confirmed as the Western Conference winners of MLS when they defeated the San Jose Earthquakes 2-0 on the weekend.

Galaxy midfielder David Beckham played a major role in the final stages of the season as the club clinched top spot in their division and was delighted to have given the fans something to cheer about.

"We wanted to finish off on a high especially in front of our fans and we did do that," Beckham told mls.net.

"It was important we won the game, to be top in our division.

"We've played better in games and we've passed the ball better in games but we won the game.

"It pleased the fans that it made us the top but we don't stop here.

"There is still a lot of work to be done but I'm happy with the position we're in."

The Galaxy now meet Houston Dynamo in next week's semi-final series - the first match is at Houston and the return leg in LA a week later.
