CARSON, Calif. (AP) — David Beckham wraps up his five-year career with the Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday in the MLS Cup.

He just hopes fans realize they'll miss an excellent game if all eyes are focused only on him.

Los Angeles goes after its second straight MLS title at home in a rematch with the Houston Dynamo, who lost 1-0 on the same field last season in Beckham's first championship.

Beckham is leaving the Galaxy for an unclear destination. U.S. star Landon Donovan also says he might walk away from Los Angeles in an apparent mid-career case of burnout.

Even if the Galaxy's core is breaking up, they're eager to go out with the franchise's fourth MLS Cup.

The Dynamo say they're better prepared this year to spring an upset.
