Beckham and Galaxy Routed by DC United

DC United won its fourth straight match, topping the LA Galaxy in a hot and humid midday game, 4-1.

Emilio scored two goals and had one assist in the win.

Beckham got a mixed reaction from the Washington fans but says he's used to it.

"I've had a lot worse, but you know that's part of the game," said David Beckham. "It's part of the atmosphere, part of soccer. You know, it's the same all around the world. When you play away from home the fans are less friendly all the time, that's the way it is. You know you accept that and you get on with it. If you win the game you enjoy it."

Beckham did admit his Galaxy club was outplayed by DC United. After an injury-plagued 2007 season, the popular star said he realizes his impact on the game and how playing a full season will help MLS.

"I've played more minutes this year compared to last year," he said. "You know, it's great that the people and the fans turn out, because it's great for the game, it's great for the MLS, and it's good to play in that kind of atmosphere. So, yeah, it was nice to obviously see the amount of fans that turned out today, but I wish the result had been better for us.".

Next up for David Beckam and the LA Galaxy will be a home game on the Fourth of July, as they will take on the first place team in the Eastern Conference - the New England Revolution.
