DAVID Beckham's Los Angeles Galaxy has finished its whirlwind tour of Australia with a penalty shootout victory over Melbourne Victory at Etihad Stadium.

SCOREBOARD

LOS ANGELES GALAXY 2 (Keane 40 pen, 49 pen)

MELBOURNE  VICTORY 2 (Hernandez 15, Cernak 37)

Galaxy win 4-3 on penalties.

The Victory seemed to be cruising through goals to Carlos Hernandez and Isaka Cernak but penalties either side of halftime to the Galaxy sent the game to the dreaded shootout.

The Galaxy proved too strong from the spot - claiming a 4-3 shoot-out win - and will return to the US with the Hyundai Club Challenge trophy.

In possibly his last game in a Galaxy shirt, Beckham almost opened the scoring with an audacious shot from the halfway line, before earning the American team its second penalty.

However, the Etihad crowd failed to witness Beckham hitting the back of the net after the former England captain was substituted on the 89th minute mark.

Beckham has been a massive hit with Australian crowds after arriving to massive fanfare earlier in the week.
