The Union showed for one half Wednesday night that they were ready for the challenge presented by the Los Angeles Galaxy, the two-time defending champions of Major League Soccer. However, after playing the Galaxy to an entertaining 1-1 draw in the opening 45 minutes, the Union could not sustain their level of play in the second half and the Galaxy, behind the brilliant playmaking of Landon Donovan, dominated late for a 4-1 victory at PPL Park in Chester. In the 71st minute, Donovan, the all-time leading goal-scorer for the United States national team, delivered the first of his two assists - a perfect pass to Ireland international Robbie Keane, who booted the ball past Union keeper Zac MacMath to break a 1-1 tie. Donovan later set up Hector Jimenez in the 80th minute to make it 3-1, and then walked one in alone in the 87th minute against the helpless MacMath for the final score of the game for the Galaxy (5-3-2)

LONDON - David Beckham's retirement will bring an end to a soccer career that went far beyond his sport, and turned a gangly teenager from east London into one of the most recognizable faces on the planet. Hugely gifted as a player, though far from ranking with the greats Pele, Maradona, and Lionel Messi, Beckham has been a true genius via his marketability. Guided by his Spice Girl wife Victoria, Beckham, 38, progressively became a fashion icon, a global brand, and the world's highest-paid soccer player with a fortune estimated by the Sunday Times Rich List at about 165 million pounds ($250 million)

With just hours to go before Major League Soccer's roster compliance deadline, the Union made two significant moves. Forward Chandler Hoffman, the team's first-round draft pick in 2012, is headed to the Los Angeles Galaxy in exchange for a conditional SuperDraft pick in 2014. Later Friday, the Union released third-string goalkeeper Chase Harrison. The team opens its season Saturday as it hosts Sporting Kansas City at PPL Park. "Chandler and I had an honest conversation about where he stood and we decided that this trade gives him an opportunity that he would not have had within our team this season," Union manager John Hackworth said in a statement issued by the team.
