thumbnail Hello,

With David Beckham nearing game fitness, Los Angeles Galaxy coach Bruce Arena and teammate Landon Donovan welcomed him back.

After training Thursday, Dononvan spoke about how the Englishman's return comes at an opportune time to spark the Galaxy back to life in the league.

Arena was hesitant about when the 35-year-old will actually feature in a competative match, but expects it to be before the end of the month.

"We fully expect him to be involved in our team in the month of September," Arena told reporters. "All the decisions are going to be based day-to-day, week-to-week."
