No bending the truth


David Beckham didn’t need to be educated about Manchester United’s motivation heading into Wednesday’s MLS All-Star Game at Red Bull Arena. The L.A. Galaxy star, capped 115 times for England’s national team, expected the English Premier League champions to come out full blast against his All-Star teammates. “When you play at that level,” Beckham said, “you approach every game the same — to win. Man U didn’t come here to have a nice holiday and run around the field. They want to get their fitness up and they’re playing to win.” United has accomplished much on its U.S. tour. Starting with a 4-1 win over New England and continuing with a 7-0 romp over Seattle and Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Chicago in the U.S. Cup final, Manchester United has outscored the league 14-2. – AP
