It's a sea change in the LA Galaxy lineup tonight, with new goalkeeper Jaime Penedo getting his first start with the club and Carlo Cudicini nowhere in the eighteen. Also notably absent is Sean Franklin, with Leonardo starting and DeLaGarza taking over the right Fullback spot. Hector Jimenez starts in the midfield with Robbie Rogers still recovering.
LA Galaxy Subs: Mastroeni, Opare, Villarreal, Franklin, Rowe, McBean, Stephens
It's been awhile since Kofi Opare made an eighteen man lineup, and Laurent Courtois has failed to make the 18.
