Wellington Phoenix v Adelaide and LA Galaxy, starring David Beckham

It was a record club crowd on the Friday night to see Adelaide snatch a win against the Phoenix, 18000 in the stands. Here's Sam and Ben McPherson enjoying the game
When Daniel scored a penalty it looked like the Phoenix were in, specially since Adelaide were down to ten men. The Saturday around the city was a football fiesta. Here are the Phoenix team paying a visit to the Phoenix store, where you had to queue up for ages to buy the gear. Most of it sold out.
Now the main game, Saturday night, 32000 in the Caketin, and the teams walk out to streamers and fireworks. And here's Becks about to receive the ball and the close attentions of Richard Johnson. Felipe is charging in to help as well.
Just like Edgecumbe, a scrap! Captain Becks gets his fired up striker to walk away! Here's Becks about to deliver another brilliant cross field pass.
Then it's all over, The Galaxy, with some help from the ref, who gave them a penalty for tripping over the ball, win 4 - 1. Becks is swapping shirts with Phoenix captain Ross Aloisi.
