Are you watching, Stuart Pearce? Beckham sends message to Team GB coach with stunning double for LA Galaxy

Two weeks on from being omitted from the Olympic squad, the former England captain scored a trademark free kick and a 35-yard cracker in a 5-3 win over Portland Timbers
David Beckham showed Stuart Pearce what he will be missing at the Olympics with two goals for LA Galaxy against Portland Timbers at the weekend.

The former England midfielder scored a trademark free kick before grabbing his second minutes later with a stunning 35-yard effort in a 5-3 win for Galaxy.

Beckham was expected to be included in the Team GB squad for London 2012 but failed to even make the standby list, with Pearce insisting that the decision was made entirely on footballing reasons after travelling to the US to watch him.
