KENNY Miller scored the winner as Vancouver Whitecaps came from 
behind to beat ten-man New York Red Bulls 2-1.

Jamison Olave was the home player who saw red after Greg Klazura put through his own net to give New York the lead early in the second half. The Canadians equalised after 59 minutes through Jordan Harvey and Vancouver took full advantage of their numerical advantage when Scotland striker Miller scored seven minutes from time.

MLS Western Conference leaders 
FC Dallas twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at Colorado Rapids.

Meanwhile, David Beckham was in Miami yesterday viewing sports ­facilities as he continues to look into the possibility of investing in a new Major League Soccer team.

The 38-year-old former England 
captain met representatives of the Miami-Dade Sports ­Commission as part of his trip as he weighs up his options following his ­retirement from football last month.

Beckham announced on 16 May that he would retire, and featured in his last professional game as Paris St Germain beat Brest two days later at the Parc des Princes. Beckham retains a strong affinity for the game in the US, having joined the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007. He won back-to-back MLS Cups with the team in 2011 and 2012 before moving on to PSG in January of this year.

The state of Florida does not have a team in MLS, after Tampa Bay Mutiny and Miami Fusion were cut from the league during ­restructuring in 2001.
