MLS Cup Final 2011, Los Angeles Galaxy Vs. Houston Dynamo Live: Adam Cristman Misses Even More Chances

Another good David Beckham cross (this tome from open play) has once again been wasted by Adam Cristman. Landon Donovan, surging down the right, turned Jermaine Taylor inside out before laying the ball off to Beckham, whose cute chip to the back post found Cristman in space. Once again, his free head went well high and wide.

And then, amazingly, Cristman gets another chance and fluffs his lines again, Geoff Cameron tries to play out of the back with an absolutely awful pass, and Donovan latches on and quickly feeds Ireland international Robbie Keane in the center of the pitch. Keane thinks quickly and releases Cristman, but the striker gets caught up and can't get a shot away in time. He ought to have scored there, too.

A snarkier commentator than I might point out that the LA Galaxy may well have found the perfect replacement for Chad Barrett, but I'll just tell you the game remains 0-0 and leave it at that.
