CARSON, California — David Beckham was suspended for one game by Major League Soccer on Thursday for kicking a ball at an opponent in the Los Angeles Galaxy's loss at San Jose.
Beckham kicked a ball at San Jose's Sam Cronin during the 4-3 loss on Saturday. Cronin was down in the penalty box at the time, and Beckham's kick set off a prolonged argument between the teams.
Beckham was issued a yellow card for the incident. He missed the Galaxy's home loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday under suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards.
