After three seasons in Mexico with Pachuca, former LA Galaxy academy product Abraham Romero has returned to Carson, signing with Los Dos. The 20-year old started for El Tri during the 2017 U-20 World Cup and will likely compete for a starting spot alongside Eric Lopez.

“We are very excited to welcome an LA Galaxy Academy product back his hometown club after spending time with a Liga MX team,” general manager Dennis te Kloese proclaimed in a statement. “It is important that we continue to prioritize our youth development, and Abraham choosing to return and continue his professional career with our club is a result of our commitment. He’s one of the best young goalkeepers that our Academy has produced and that has shown with his success in the Mexican Youth National Team and with Pachuca. We are very enthusiastic about his future within our organization and we will look to provide him the best possible opportunity to grow as a professional.”
