Harry Kewell to miss Beckham clash

December 6, 2011

Melbourne Victory star Harry Kewell will not play in his side's exhibition soccer match against David Beckham's LA Galaxy at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.

Kewell has been left out of the squad - the Victory saying he is fit but being rested for the important A-League clash with Adelaide United at Etihad Stadium on Saturday night.

The Victory-Galaxy match had been billed as a clash between former English Premier League rivals Kewell and Beckham.

Kewell is one of three Victory regulars left out of the match, along with midfielders Leigh Broxham and Billy Celeski.
