MLS chiefs aren't panicking over the continued absence of LA Galaxy's England star David Beckham.

"We're still seeing a great deal of interest in David and the game over the weekend shows that," said MLS spokesman Will Kuhns.

"And I think everyone is arriving at the stadium well aware of his injury and well aware of the possibility that he's not able to get in that game.

"In the realm of sports injuries he hasn't been out very long, since joining the Galaxy and there have been a couple of promising signs that it won't be long until he does (come back).

"So I don't sense any worry that there is a problem. Interest hasn't waned yet and it's been overwhelming up to now. Let's hope it continues."
