David Beckham featured in LA Galaxy's 3-1 win over Columbus Crew after a six-month lay-off after suffering a ruptured Achilles while on-loan to AC Milan in March.

"I've never been out of the game for such a long time," said Beckham. "It's been a quick recovery and I'm happy with that. I thought I was ready for 90 minutes four months ago but after 10 minutes on the field, I thought like I was dying."

Edson Buddle, Dema Kovalenko and Jovan Kirovski scored to help the Galaxy regain the top spot in Major League Soccer's Western Conference, three points ahead of Real Salt Lake.
