I’d say the boo to cheer ratio was 60:40 when David Beckham jogged out to warm-up.
The Riot Squad have unveiled some apt signs for the occasion including “Hey Becks! Here before you, here after you, here despite you,” “23 Repent” and “Go home fraud
(Updated: It’s about 13 minutes before kickoff; the signs are gone,
no doubt removed by AEG. Update 2: They’re back).
It’s thankfully cooling off here in Carson, but it will still be an endurance test for the capacity crowd where full sun remains.
Galaxy XI (4-4-2): Donovan Ricketts, A.J. DeLaGarza, Omar Gonazalez, Gregg Berhalter, Todd Dunivant, Eddie Lewis, David Beckham, Landon Donovan, Stefani Miglioranzi, Edson Buddle, Alecko Eskandarian.
Alan Gordon, Jovan Kirovski and Chris Birchall are among the bench options.
(Updated: Boos mixed with cheers when Beckham was introduced, too).
AC Milan lineup (4-4-2): Zeljko Kalac, Massimo Oddo, Alessandro Nesta, Thiago Silva, Marek Jankulovski, Mathieu Flamini, Massimo Ambrosini, Clarence Seedorf, Davide Di Gennaro, Marco Borriello, Ronaldinho.
Filippo Inzagi is on the bench; Alessandro Nesta, new signing Oguchi Onyewu and Pato are among those missing altogether for Milan.
The game is on FSN.
