David Beckham plays for the final 12 minutes as his new club Los Angeles Galaxy lose 1-0 to Chelsea.

England midfielder Beckham, 32, who has been struggling with an ankle injury, got a good reception from the capacity 27,000 crowd at the Home Depot Center.

But he was unable to turn the tide in favour of the United States team after John Terry scored in the 49th minute.

The match was part of Chelsea's pre-season tour of the United States.

Asked to describe his feelings after making his debut, Beckham said: "It was very emotional - I think just proud of the way people reacted to me today personally.
