David Beckham urges LA Galaxy fans to be patient in the face of mounting criticism

David Beckham scored his first goal for LA Galaxy in Wednesday's SuperLiga semi-final win over DC United.

The strike, courtesy of a trademark free-kick on 28 minutes, will go some way to placating those supporters who had begun to question his commitment.

But the 32-year-old midfielder knows he has more convincing to do as he attempts to win over hearts and minds following his high-profile move to the United States.

Beckham's move to Major League Soccer has not gone to plan so far.

A persistent ankle injury had severely limited his involvement with the Galaxy prior to the win over DC United, leading to discontent amongst some fans.

A small section had even go so far as to register their frustration with provocative t-shirts and placards.
