With the game fast approaching, the form of the two teams could not be more different. Melbourne Victory are struggling to perform at the fortress of Etihad Stadium, while LA Galaxy have just won the title in America. But, to be honest, the friendly isn't about the teams. The matchup reads 'Beckham vs Kewell'.
The most famous English soccer player of all time, David Beckham, against the Australian equivalent in Harry Kewell promises to be a clash like no other you will see on Melbourne soil. Despite being well into their thirties, the duo still offer the sport so much, and are as technically gifted as anyone. Beckham only needs a free kick from anywhere forward of centre to be a threat, while the left foot of Kewell is a precise cannon. All skill will be on show.
The match will be held at Victory's home ground, Etihad Stadium, on the 6th of December. Kickoff is at 7:30pm, and tickets are selling fast. If you aren't already convinced by the two headliners, there is much more talent on offer. Victory boast the likes of Archie Thompson, Carlos Hernandez and the speedy Marco Rojas, while Galaxy contain Irish legend Robbie Keane, as well as USA star Landon Donovan. Both have played in the English Premier League, and score more often than not.
Tickets range from $25.50 to $170.00, depending on where you would like to sit. The great fact about soccer is that you don't need the closest view to enjoy the spectacle. Often the best way to watch the game is from a higher vantage point, to truly appreciate passing and tactic. Beckham and Kewell will be easily identifiable no matter where you are situated around the pitch, so the best choice would be to visit the Ticketmaster website and choose your favourite position.
