David Beckham AC Milan Debut Update: Sunday January 11, 2009

Beckham played 89 minutes for AC Milan in its 2-2 tie against AS Roma at a packed Olympic Stadium in Rome.

Playing primarily a defensive midfield role alongside Andrea Pirlo and Clarence Seedorf, Beckham was involved in the game throughout but was not one of its lead characters. He took most of the corner kicks and a few of the free kicks, but his offensive contribution was otherwise limited.

Beckham took one shot on goal, but like swatting a fly it was saved without bother by Alexander Doni, Roma's Brazilian goalkeeper.
