LA Galaxy's Beckham feels soccer growing in USA

After over a year in the USA, LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham believes he is helping attract more Americans to soccer.

"I think we've moved the needle slightly," he said. "I said when I first moved here that it's not going to take a year or two. It will take five or maybe 10 years to make this league grow to a much higher level.

"You see many families turn up with their young kids and watch the Galaxy playing. In 10 years those kids are going to be 15 and 16 years old, turning around and saying 'I remember when we saw the Galaxy play'.

"It might take that long, but hopefully we've made the footprint that obviously takes it further on."
