Beckham's American dream set to end

Footballer must choose next moves as $250m five-year contract to raise profile of game in US expires.

    British football star David Beckham's run on the pitches of the US is expected to end on Sunday, with his last scheduled game with the Los Angeles Galaxy team.

    Beckham arrived five years ago in the country, after signing a $250m contract, in a bid to help raise the profile of football there.

    But while some support may have been gained, the game is still not a popular professional sport.

    Beckham will now have to choose his next move - either re-sign for the LA Galaxy, join another team or retire.
