LA Galaxy star Beckham happy to hear Philadelphia Union jeers

LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham had no problems with the boos aimed at him during their win at Philadelphia Union.

Beckham created Edson Buddle's winner in the 1-0 victory.

Beckham, who was replaced in the 76th minute by Jovan Kirovski, was introduced to a Philadelphia tradition by many of the PPL-record 18,779 in attendance - being booed every time he touched the ball.

"Without a doubt, it is the way it should be," Beckham said. "That is the atmosphere in Europe when you go to an away game, and I really enjoyed it."

He also enjoyed the previous evening at the baseball. Beckham attended the Phillies game in two parts. He saw the first few innings, left for a team dinner, and returned for the final few innings to see Roy Halladay finish off his no-hitter.

"To be part of that historical night was really special," Beckham said.
