L.A. Galaxy star and future action hero David Beckham found himself perturbed late in last night's CONCACAF Champions League tie at Rogers Centre when Toronto fans greeted him for a late corner kick with streamers and, eventually, a can of
Heineken Alexander Keith's.
After stomping around with the can a bit, he delivered a classic Beckham corner that after playing a bit of Marble Madness in the box found its way into the goal off Landon Donovan's boot for an equalizer. It silenced the 47,658 in attendance—the second-most ever for a CCL match—and afterward Beckham didn't seem to be so cranky:
I'm glad the game was staged here. Obviously I knew it was a bigger stadium and I knew these fans would fill it out. Overall I think everyone had fun. Obviously the fans saw their team score two goals, I'm sure they didn't like seeing us score two goals. Overall it was a great atmosphere to play in.
Toronto will play at L.A. in the return trip next week. [Fox Soccer]
