Beckham makes surprise start in Milan triumph

[ITALY] David Beckham was so anxious to get back in the AC Milan, he offered to play at right back, but it was on the right side of attack that he made a surprise start for the Rossoneri in their 5-2 win in on Wednesday night. England coach Fabio Capello was on hand at the San Siro, and he could not have been displeased by Beckham's performance.

Beckham, who replaced injured Brazilian sensation Alexandre Pato up front, was involved in the buildup of the tying goal in the 32 minute that was scored by Ronaldinho from the penalty spot.

Brazilian Thiago Silva put Milan ahead in the 38th minute before two goals from Marco Borriello early in the second half broke the game open.

A penalty kick by Dutchman Klaas-Jan Huntelaar added to the rout before Genoa got a late goal from Honduran David Suazo playing his first game on loan from Inter Milan.
