We're gonna do a bit of everything this morning. We've got some results, we're got some articles, there's a mime probably. So results! Yes the Galaxy reserves trotted out this lineup yesterday:
Saunders; Garcia, Iro, Meyer, Sorto; Stephens, Nakazawa, Walker, Jordan(c); Villarreal, Rodriguez
With these subs:
Brian Perk, Nathan Smith, Sebastian Velasquez, Jack McBean, Drew Murphy
A roster that included five Galaxy Academy players and a trialist. Per the rules, a trialist can suit up for the reserve team on a one day contract. The following players scored: Jose Villarreal (2), Jack McBean
Both players have Galaxy homegrown player contracts, Villarreal is 18 going on 19, McBean is 17. But it might be time for these players to get some looks with the senior squad.
As for the United States. Donovan started and went the full 90. Don't expect him to start on Sunday against Portland Timbers. Once again he had more points than anyone on the Opta chalkboard. 43 successful passes and 2 key passes made up almost half his contribution, but his heat map was not nearly as spread out as last match. Both his key passes were from the left into the center, from outside the box.
As for the national media take on the match:
