Mr. Posh Spice Won't be Coming to Cleveland After All

Posted By on Thu, Jun 28, 2007 at 5:49 PM

A showdown between the Cleveland City Stars and British soccer stud David Beckham apparently wasn’t meant to be. On a humid Tuesday night, the Richmond Kickers capitalized on their hometown advantage to edge the Stars 2-1 in the second round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. The victory sets up a third-round match between the Kickers and the L.A. Galaxy on July 10. Since Beckham doesn’t start as L.A.’s $50-million-a-year midfielder until Sunday, the face-off will mark Beckham’s third game in the States after signing a five-year deal in January to leave Spain’s Real Madrid squad. The Stars are now seeking revenge. They meet Richmond again on July 21 at Cleveland State’s Krenzler Field for a regular-season match in the United Soccer League. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $10. -- Cris Glaser
