MLS Cup final 2012: David Beckham has come to play

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

David Beckham has already created three very good chances in the first 20 minutes.

David Beckham may not be among best players in MLS, even if he's one of the league's highest paid, but man he sure is fun to watch when he's at his best. To the joy of anyone involved in this game who doesn't have a rooting interest in the Houston Dynamo, he's putting on quite a show during Saturday's MLS Cup final.

Playing his final game in a Galaxy shirt, Beckham has already set up three good chances in the first 20 minutes. All of them have come on pinpoint passes, two of them in the run of play and one on a set-piece. Beckham set up Christian Wilhelmson on a beautiful pass over the top, should have picked up an assist on the ball that eventually sprung Landon Donovan for the game's best chance and delivered a perfect free kick that Mike Magee really should have finished at the back post.

Beckham may not be the perfect player, but he might be the perfect player for this Galaxy team.
