MLS Cup Final 2009: Highlights

The LA Galaxy loses in a penalty shootout to Real Salt Lake. If you missed it, here are the highlights. Beckham stepped up first and smashed home his penalty while Landon hit his over the bar. Nick Rimando again was the hero for Salt Lake as he saved two penalties.

On the other side, Josh Saunders, who came on when Donovan Ricketts injured his hand, also made two incredible saves, but Donovan and Edson Buddle failed to convert from the spot to give LA the trophy.


Penalty-kick shootout:

LA -- David Beckham (Goal)
RSL -- Clint Mathis (Goal)
LA -- Gregg Berhalter (Goal)
RSL -- Robbie Findley (Goal)
LA -- Jovan Kirovski (Saved)
RSL -- Kyle Beckerman (Saved)
LA -- Landon Donovan (High)
RSL -- Ned Grabavoy (Goal)
LA -- Mike Magee (Goal)
RSL -- Andy Williams (Saved)
LA -- Chris Klein (Goal)
RSL -- Chris Wingert (Goal)
LA -- Edson Buddle (Saved)
RSL -- Robbie Russell (Goal)

What did Donvoan say after the game?

"You don't want to judge yourself based on one loss or one penalty-kick shootout, but unfortunately that's what you're judged on at the end," Donovan said. "We're very proud of where we got to, but it's hard in this moment to feel good."

"Penalty shootouts are part of soccer, and we don't have a choice whether we want to do that or not, but it's a difficult way to lose for every team," Donovan said. "After the pain from the loss subsides, we'll realize what a great year we had and we'll build on that."
