David Beckham Named Captain For Galaxy

CARSON (AP) — David Beckham has gotten the captain’s armband back for the Los Angeles Galaxy for the first time in three years.

Beckham will be captain Saturday for the Major League Soccer team’s game at Real Salt Lake.

Beckham took over as captain when he joined the team in 2007 but last captained the Galaxy on Oct. 26, 2008.

The armband was given to Landon Donovan the following year.

Donovan will miss the game to be with the U.S. national team for its exhibition against Argentina in East Rutherford, N.J.
