Team unity the key as LA Galaxy return to form - Beckham

LA Galaxy were back on the winners list with a 3-1 victory over DC United on Sunday.

The reigning MLS champions received their 2011 rings in front of The Home Depot Center fans before grabbing their first win this season following a draw and a loss to Toronto FC in the CONCACAF Champions League and last weekend's 3-1 loss to Real Salt Lake.

Galaxy star David Beckham felt it was a much better team performance whilst reveling in yet another piece of silverware he can add to his expanding collection.

"I think we played more as a team, we worked hard for each other and I think we put away the chances we had," he said.

"As simple as that. Today is a good day. We can still play better, but it was important we get our first win.

"To receive a ring, it's special. Last season was a special time. I've spoken about it before, we'd come very close the last three years so to do it the way we did it, in our home stadium was special.

"So to get the rings today was even more so. It's a big ring, so it will go probably in a place in the house with the rest of my trophies and medals I've won over the years."
