Beckham's 70 Yard Goal (LA vs. KC)

In case you haven't heard, David Beckham scored a 70 yard goal this past weekend when LA was playing Kansas City. The keeper was out of the net in an attempt to tie the game on a corner. He got punished.

Beckham scored a similar goal in 1996 when he was playing for Manchester United (against Wimbledon). It is shown below. Big difference: Keeper was in the net when he struck this one from the midfield line. Talk about back of the net on the fly. I didn't make this connection myself - the US MNT blog pointed the way.
