Beckham-less Los Angeles hosts Houston

Coach Bruce Arena decided to give David Beckham another day off Wednesday when the Los Angeles Galaxy host the Houston Dynamo, only this time so the ex-England captain could play a match in his homeland.

Beckham was rested when L.A. played a midweek match recently in Major League Soccer, and was allowed to leave this week for a testimonial match Tuesday in honor of former England and Manchester United teammate Gary Neville.

The story is too old to be commented.
