Ward-Prowse has Beckham’s EPL free kick record in his sights


LEEDS, England (AP) — James Ward-Prowse has David Beckham in his sights. The Southampton midfielder produced more free kick magic to earn his team a 1-1 draw at Leeds in the English Premier League and halt its four-game losing run. Only Beckham, with 18, has scored more direct free kick goals in Premier League history than James Ward-Prowse, who has moved on to 13. Jack Harrison gave Leeds the lead in the 29th by bundling home from close range after Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster failed to gather Raphinha’s cross from the right. Leeds moved eight points clear of the relegation zone.
