TSN has live coverage of David Beckham's final game with the LA Galaxy as the team squares off against the Houston Dynamo in the MLS Cup 2012 on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. ET.

The highly anticipated MLS Cup 2012 is a rematch of last year's championship, which saw Beckham win his first league title in front of a home crowd as the Galaxy defeated the Dynamo 1-0.

MLS On TSN's Luke Wileman and Jason deVos are on site at The Home Depot Center in Carson, California to file reports for SportsCentre and TSN.ca leading up to and following the MLS Cup 2012. 

The MLS Cup 2012 is also available live on TSN Mobile TV and in French on RDS.  Online, fans can visit TSN.ca to participate in a live blog during the game with TSN's soccer expert Noel Butler. 

As the Galaxy looks to win its fourth MLS Cup in team history, Beckham will be chasing his second league title. Along with Beckham, the Galaxy's star-studded line-up includes Robbie Keane, Ireland national team captain, and Landon Donovan, last year's MLS Cup MVP. Donovan, who many consider to be the greatest soccer player to emerge from the United States, may also be making his final appearance with the Galaxy.

The Dynamo is led by its dynamic midfield combination of Brad Davis, Ricardo Clark, Boniek García, and Adam Moffat. Davis, who recently earned his fourth consecutive team MVP award, is back in MLS Cup action after missing last year's final due to injury. The team's solid roster also includes Montreal-native Andre Hainault, who was awarded Dynamo of the Year in 2011. The Dynamo is looking for its third league title in its fourth MLS Cup appearance since 2006.
