NEW YORK (AP) — David Beckham is used to bending free kicks for goals. He was not prepared for seven years of twists en route to his team's Major League Soccer debut this weekend. The former England captain joined MLS with the LA Galaxy from 2007-12. He boosted the league's profile as part of a deal that gave him the right to buy an expansion team at a discounted price of $25 million. Inter Miami opens Sunday at Los Angeles FC and plays its home opener March 14 in Fort Lauderdale, its temporary stadium for the next few years.
