Beckham ready for the Clasico

We have a very passionate game coming up against Chivas USA, one that I am really looking forward to. It's going to be a very close and aggressive one, as Clasicos should be," said Beckham, referring to the upcoming MLS clash at the Home Depot Center against Chivas USA.

I have played in many derbies worldwide and truly this one is very interesting. It is played with a lot of intensity. It's great to play in these games, especially when you are fighting for first place and you are healthy," added a very happy Beckham who is comfortable with his level of play after a injury plagued 2007.

We're in a good position right now, playing very decent soccer. There is always room to improve, but you cannot point fingers and blame your teammates since this is a team sport.

On July 24th, Beckham will represent MLS in the All-Star game. He spoke of his anxiety to finally play in Toronto against English side West Ham United.

I am excited and looking forward the All-Star game in Toronto. I've yet to play there. I hear it's a great atmosphere. I also know a few of the opposing players, since I have played with a couple and played against a few of the others.

Galaxy and Chivas USA square off in the MLS Superclasico this Thursday at the Home Depot Center in Carson. The winner will sit atop of the Western Conference. The last L.A. derby was won by the Galaxy in a 5-2 romp a few weeks ago.
