David Beckham "Welcome to L.A." Party

David Beckham made his hotly-anticipated debut for the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team in front of a host of Hollywood stars on Saturday (21.07.07).

Katie Holmes, Eva Longoria, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jennifer Love Hewitt were among the sell-out crowd cheering on the sports superstar at the Home Depot Center Stadium.

David's wife Victoria was also in the stands along with the couple's three sons, Brooklyn, eight, Romeo, four and two-year-old Cruz.

The Spice Girl was seen sipping champagne with 'Desperate Housewives' beauty Eva, while her three sons found time during the match to entertain Katie's one-year-old daughter Suri.

Although David - who has signed a multi-million pound five-year contract with the club - only made it onto the pitch for the final 12 minutes of the match due to an ankle injury, he received an overwhelming reception.

The 27,000 fans gave him a standing ovation as he came on and cheered and applauded his every move and touch of the ball.

After the match - which English side Chelsea won 1-0 - the stars in attendance praised the Galaxy's most famous player.

Eva said: "It's wonderful that he is here. He will do a lot for soccer in America."

While fellow actress Jennifer said: "The game was better than any move premiere."

Last night (22.07.07), David and Victoria attended a 'Welcome to Hollywood' party thrown by good friends Tom Cruise and his wife Katie and Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

The invitation-only event was held at the Geffen Contemporary museum, which is part of the Museum of Contemporary Art, in Los Angeles.

The exclusive party was attended by a number of stars, including Jim Carrey and his partner Jenny McCarthy, Brooke Shields and Alyson Hannigan.
