New York:

Don Garber says David Beckham did everything Major League Soccer asked of him to grow the sport in the United States during his 51/2 seasons with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The 37-year-old former England captain plays his final competitive match for the Galaxy on Saturday in the MLS Cup against Houston.

When Beckham left Real Madrid in 2007 to sign a $32.5 million, five-year deal with the Galaxy, Beckham said he wanted to win and increase the league's popularity both domestically and abroad. The Galaxy won last year's title and are in the final for the third time in four years.
