Beckham scores on free kick, Galaxy tie Impact 1-1
MONTREAL — David Beckham bent in a free kick in the 62nd minute to help the Los Angeles Galaxy tie the Montreal Impact 1-1 on Saturday at Olympic Stadium in front of 60,860 fans — the largest crowd for a professional soccer game in Canada.
There was a mix of boos and cheers each time Beckham played the ball, even when he scored on one of his patented free kicks that curled inside the right post from 23 yards.
Beckham’s second goal of the season came 6 minutes after he was shown the yellow card for an elbow to the face of Felipe Martins, which might have been embellished by the Brazilian.
Davy Arnaud scored for Montreal in the second minute.
Los Angeles is 3-5-2, and Montreal is 3-5-3.
