Two games for Galaxy fans to pay attention to today, one locally and one in England.
First, David Beckham figures to be the center of attention today – he’s seen here practicing with his AC Milan teammates at Old Trafford Monday – when he returns to Manchester United’s home stadium for the first time since leaving for Real Madrid in the second leg of the teams’ UEFA Champions League game (AP Photo).
The game is live at 11:30 a.m. on Fox Soccer Channel. Beckham hasn’t been starting for Milan of late, but you’ve got to figure he’s going to see some action today.
Full coverage is here.
Here’s Beckham arriving in Manchester.
Closer to home the Galaxy play their first preseason game against Puntarenas FC of Costa Rica at Titan Stadium on the campus of Cal State Fullerton. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20.
Student journalists from the Daily Titan were out at the Galaxy’s practice Monday and filed this report.
The Costa Rican club’s roster is here.
Galaxy striker Edson Buddle will be looking to get off the mark tonight.
I plan to blog from the game, so if you can’t be there tonight check back in here.
