Beckham impresses in Milan debut

Published Add your comment

David Beckham played almost the entire game on his Serie A debut for AC Milan against Roma and impressed in a clash that ended in a 2-2 draw at the Stadio Olimpico.

The England midfielder, signed on a two-month loan from the Los Angeles Galaxy, swung in several dangerous crosses before being substituted two minutes from time.

Mirko Vucinic put Roma ahead in the 22nd minute, however Milan turned things around early in the second half as Alexandre Pato struck twice in the space of eight minutes. But Vucinic levelled the scores in the 73rd minute to deny Milan their first win on the road since October 26.

The outcome leaves Milan in third position, nine points behind league leaders Inter Milan.
