although they could have scored more goals, AC Milan got away with 1 goal against Fiorentina. David Beckham himself almost bagged 1 goal if it hadn't been saved by the goalkeeper. thanks to Pato who cleverly passed the ball to Becks who was freely running on the right side. it would have been the most gracious day in Milan for him if he had score the goal. nevermind, he still has another chance in his next match. unfortunately, he can't be involved in champs league matches as it will expose him to other elite European clubs. too bad for him, AC Milan had failed to snatch a place last season. hopefully, he can score the next time he plays. but for right now, his performance was getting sharper and better. and i think it is enough for Capello to see his experienced midfielder is ready to give his best
Milan made an important step forward in their quest for Champions League football last night, and David Beckham was pleased with his team’s performance.
Milan earned a 1-0 victory over Fiorentina, but the result was overshadowed by protests from the home fans over the possible sale of Kaka.
Alexandre Pato's goal in the seventh minute was his sixth in the Rossoneri's last four Serie A fixtures, allowing the third-placed Rossoneri to continue a great record at home which has only one blemish on it from the very first day.
David Beckham played 80 minutes for Milan before being replaced by Philippe Senderos. Fiorentina played well, but not even a red card for Milan defender Marek Jankulovski in stoppage time could alter the outcome.
England midfielder Beckham was playing in his third game for the Rossoneri, after a friendly against Hamburg and last week’s Serie A encounter with Roma, where his team drew 2-2.
The former England captain had another fine performance in the red and black of Milan, while linking up well with team mates and coming close to scoring a goal for the club with a volley from the right.
After the game Becks had this to say, “It was a difficult game for all the circumstances and the atmosphere there was around us. The important thing was to win and we succeeded, and we managed to play better.”
