David Beckham says he is looking forward to the play-offs after Los Angeles Galaxy’s 2-0 victory over San Jose Earthquakes confirmed his side as winners of the MLS Western Conference.
The England international was given a standing ovation when he was replaced by Jovan Kirovski four minutes from time and Beckham said it was important to confirm their first Western Conference title in seven years.
He told mls.net: ”We wanted to finish off on a high especially in front of our fans and we did do that.
”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.”
Houston beat Chivas USA 2-0 in the other match meaning the Galaxy will play their Home Depot Center co-tenants in the first leg of their semi-final series.
