[GALAXY TOUR] The Los Angeles Galaxy beat an Indonesia selection, 1-0, on a Robbie Keane goal to kick off its 2011 Asia Pacific Tour Wednesday night in Jakarta. The friendly drew about 20,000 fans at the 80,000-seat Gelora Bung Karno Stadium.

The Galaxy started the same lineup it did in MLS Cup 2011 but made 11 substitutions in the second half.

The Galaxy is now off to Manila, where it will play Filipino club Azkals Saturday in game dubbed "The Dream Cup." Its tour concludes Tuesday in Melbourne, Australia.

    It's funny how we get mad when American soccer fans root against MLS during the summer exhibitions (Man U, etc). But they do the same thing overseas. The Indonesia fans were pulling for the Galaxy, because they dont care about some patched together group of local players.

    Wow, surprised that Beckham played 81 minutes.
