Eh, sometimes soccer is hard. Your Seattle Sounders travelled to LA to square off against the league-leading FCs and wound up doing losing. Seattle were off to a great start thanks to an LA own goal in the 14th minute, following a superb tackle and dribble by Cristian Roldan. Seattle even seemed to be dealing with LA’s press well, until they weren’t. LAFC turned up the pressure and the star power through the likes of Greg Chiellini, Chuck Vela, and Garth Bale. Good for them.
Here’s the scale:
(Substitutes can be left blank if the player did not play enough to judge)
1 - not a pro (USL/NASL/MLS) quality performance
4 - average USL starter
6 - average MLS starter
9 - MLS All Star
10 - MLS MVP-quality performance
