David Beckham did all he could to win a football title in a third country but it wasn’t quite enough.

The England veteran took three painkilling injections to dull the pain in his bruised right foot before Sunday night’s MLS Cup title match for Los Angeles. He set up his team’s only goal. He played all 120 minutes, including 30 minutes of overtime. Then he banged in the first of the Galaxy’s four penalties in a shootout.

But after Real Salt Lake won on penalties over his star-studded Galaxy team, Beckham reiterated that he will return for the fourth season of his five-year MLS contract.

Beckham says he will eventually exercise his option to buy an MLS club. His option begins with the 20th team in the league, which won’t come until at least 2012.
