LA Galaxy to play Queensland Roar

David Beckham and his LA Galaxy will take on Australian A-League side Queensland Roar in an exhibition match on 11 December, the Queensland state government have announced.

The LA Galaxy will fly into Brisbane on 7 December, the day after their game against an Oceania All-Stars invitational team in Auckland, in preparation for the Australian game, the government said in a statement.

Beckham drew a crowd of 80,000 to Sydney's Olympic stadium late last year when the Galaxy went down 5-3 to Sydney FC, despite a signature goal from the former England captain.
