Los Angeles: David Beckham may have led the Los Angeles Galaxy to the MLS championship game but he has been left off the league`s all-star squad.

While Galaxy midfielder Landon Donovan and Swedish star Freddie Ljunberg made the squad there was no room for Beckham.

Beckham`s Galaxy will face Real Salt Lake in the 2009 MLS Cup game in Seattle on Sunday.

Donovan and Ljunberg were two of the five midfielders on the 11-man all-star team which also comprised one goalkeeper, three defenders and two forwards.

Chivas USA`s Zach Thornton was picked as a goalkeeper while the defence featured Columbus Crew centre back Chad Marshall, Houston Dynamo`s Geoff Cameron and the Chicago Fire`s Wilman Conde.

The league`s top two goal-scorers from the regular season, FC Dallas striker Jeff Cunningham and Colorado Rapids forward Conor Casey earned the forward honours.
