Beckham remains on sidelines in L.A.


LOS ANGELES (AP) – David Beckham was listed among the reserves for the Los Angeles Galaxy’s game against Chivas in the SuperLiga tournament Saturday night.

He has been limited because of a left ankle injury that caused him to miss two consecutive games, including the Galaxy’s 2-1 victory over Pachuca in its SuperLiga opener Tuesday.

Galaxy coach Frank Yallop had said Friday that Beckham wouldn’t play against Chivas. But the English star walked on the field, with the left leg of his warmup pants hitched to his knee, and took a seat on the bench before the game at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

Beckham has played just 16 minutes, including four minutes of stoppage time, in one game since joining the Galaxy on July 13.

He has not been able to train with the team because of the injury that occurred nearly two months ago while playing for England in a European Championship qualifier.
