There was a lot of hype surrounding the Galaxy and David’s first game in Los Angeles. The stadium was packed with raging fans, celebrities and sports critics. David wasn’t seen warming up until about ten minutes before the game was over, when he stood up and took off his warm-ups, the crowd went crazy and started chanting “Beckham, Beckham.” He played for thirteen minutes and was made fun of for being hurt after his first game.

We were facing our rivals who had defeated us before by 20 points. The pressure was really high. However, many doubted that we had a chance to win because of how we had lost our last game against them.
