London, Aug 8 (ANI): Star midfielder David Beckham is set to again risk the wrath of LA Galaxy fans by flying across the Atlantic for England's friendly with Holland.

Beckham is already a hate figure among US followers, who have confronted him over his commitment to the club.

He has had two mid-match arguments with fans in the stands and been booed in recent weeks, The Sun reports.

Beckham has now decided that he will complete an 11,000-mile round-trip to play a role in Wednesday's Amsterdam friendly.

The news will infuriate the Galaxy faithful, as the club are pushing for a play-off place for the first time in Beckham's three years in the US. And they have a league game three days later against Seattle Sounders.

Galaxy hoped Beckham would only play in competitive internationals, not meaningless friendlies.

But he is desperate to be part of England boss Fabio Capello's World Cup 2010 plans and is willing to face more flak in the States to ensure he is on the plane to South Africa next summer. (ANI)
