Beckham + Penalties = Failure Once Again

The MLS Championship game was played last night and in an on the whole entertaining affair, Los Angeles Galaxy and Real Salt Lake fought out a 1-1 draw after extra time, with the men from Utah claiming the title on 5-4 penatlies.

Having failed with England three times on the major stage with penalty shoot outs, Becks can now add another loss to his memories.

It was a great win for Real Salt Lake, a team I know a lot of East Fife took an interest in after Kenny Deuchar moved to play with them last season.

The game was played in front of a fantastic crowd of 46,011 at Seattle’s Qwest Field. When you see games like this, along with the big name friendlies the SOunders attracted this season, it makes your mouth water at what is in store if you’re a Vancouver Whitecaps fan.

With BC Place having the big capacity, the 2011 MLS Championship game is likely ot be getting played in Vancouver.

The day will be an amazing spectacle for the fans (the Sounders fans had the game included in their season ticket package), no matter who is in the final. If the Caps could make it there, then it would be all the sweeter.
