LA Galaxy II announced two additional signings to their roster on Tuesday, in French midfielder Rémi Cabral and American defender Owen Lambe.
Cabral, 21, joins after playing in his native France for Metz’s second team and Valenciennes’ second team, both in the third division.
“Rémi is a dynamic attacking player who we believe will be a valuable addition to LA Galaxy II,” said LA Galaxy General Manager Dennis te Kloese in a team statement. “We are excited for Rémi to join our organization and we look forward to him representing the club.”
If the name sounds familiar to you, that’s because Cabral’s twin brother Kévin was signed by the Galaxy’s first team as a Designated Player a few weeks ago. It sounds like the brothers are coming over together to begin the next phase of their professional career, and we’ll see how Rémi does with Los Dos.
Lambe, 22, joins Los Dos after playing college soccer at Cal State Fullerton in 2019, making 19 appearances.
“Owen is a young and versatile player who has good potential,” said Te Kloese. “We believe he will add solid depth to our defense. We are pleased to add Owen to our organization and look forward to him continuing to develop as a player.”
The Galaxy II roster is now up to 16 announced players, with one of those, forward Augustine Williams, expected to sign an MLS contract in the coming days. Expect a few loanees from the MLS team, perhaps a couple of academy players, and voila! A roster. Los Dos kick off the 2021 season Friday when they host Sacramento Republic at Dignity Health Sports Park.
