Soccer Sunday Beckham in New Zealand Update

Well, it’s Sunday in New Zealand. And Beckham and the Galaxy aren’t there yet (they leave Monday – and get there Wednesday).

With the Galaxy taking former UCLA player Leonard Griffin (among others) on the club’s one-game trip to New Zealand Monday, game organizers down under have countered with former Dutch international Edgar Davids.

Granted, he hasn’t played in months, but then neither has the Galaxy.

Meanwhile, after two trips to New Zealand in two years perhaps fans down there have a little of the Beckham blahs.

    According to the NZ newspaper report, the Galaxy rosters includes such “name players” as “Landon Donovan, Chris Klein and Steven Cronin.”

    Steven Cronin as a name player?

    Nick replies: He has a name.
