Barnes' cameo role as Becks signs off
FORMER Derby County midfielder Giles Barnes appeared as a late substitute in the MLS Cup final at the weekend.
The 24-year-old came off the bench for Houston Dynamos with 19 minutes left of their 3-1 defeat by LA Galaxy, for whom David Beckham made his final appearance.
Houston had led 1-0 at half-time but Galaxy hit back in the second half with goals from Omar Gonzalez, Landon Donovan, a penalty, and former Tottenham Hotspur striker Robbie Keane, also a penalty.
Donovan now has five MLS Cup wins in his career while Beckham finishes his six-year stay in the United States with a second successive MLS crown.
