Arena accepts Galaxy defeat

David Beckham took part but strained his groin muscle, though he continued and played the whole game.

Arena said afterwards “we’re disappointed obviously, in the result. I think the effort was fine, I think the willingness to put everything in this was good. I think at the end of the day it was pretty simple. They made the plays they needed. They had five shots on goal and scored three, we had a bunch more and didn’t score.”
