SAN DIEGO - David Beckham gave Los Angeles Galaxy fans plenty of reason to cheer in his return match Wednesday, despite Mexico's Club Xoloitzcuintles de Caliente defeating the Major League Soccer team 4-3 in a shootout.

Landon Donovan gave Los Angeles a 2-1 lead in the 75th when he converted a pass from Chris Burchall.

The Mexican club rallied in the 82nd minute when Miguel Lopez scored a penalty.
