With US Camp now over after two 1-0 victories by the boys in Red, White, and Blue, 29 players has grown to 32 as A.J DeLaGarza, Michael Stephens, and Brian Perk return to the Galaxy fold. The only two players left out there are Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane, who continue to be key contributors to their loan clubs. Re-Entry Draft pick Andrew Boyens finalized his contract, as he'll compete for the open Center Back position.
The Galaxy selected six players in the Re-Entry Draft, with Boyens and Pat Noonan agreeing to contracts. Jon Conway, Chris Leitch, and Dasan Robinson elected to retire, while Frankie Hejduk was unable to come to terms with the club. Jovan Kirovski signed on as an assistant coach.
Landon Donovan set up a pair of goals on Saturday, as Everton came back from a 1-0 deficit to advance in the FA Cup. Robbie Keane also factored into a pair of goals for Aston Villa, but they were unable to hold on and were eliminated from Cup competition. Both Designated Players will be returning at the end of February.
Donovan and Everton host Manchester City today, while Villa hosts QPR on Wednesday. The Galaxy will be playing their first preseason game on Friday, against the Los Angeles Blues.
