LONDON - David Beckham will miss England's trip to Doha to play Brazil on Saturday following Los Angeles Galaxy's 1-0 win over Chivas USA on Sunday to win their Major League Soccer Western Conference semifinal series 3-2 on aggregate.
The win means that Galaxy will host Houston Dynamo, who beat Seattle Sounders FC earlier on Sunday, in the Western Conference final next week, ruling out Beckham's participation in the glamour friendly.
The Western Conference winner will play the winner of the Eastern Conference final between Chicago Fire and Real Salt Lake in the MLS Cup final.
American Landon Donovan scored the only goal of the game against Chivas USA, a penalty in the 73rd minute. - Sapa-AFP
