The Los Angeles Galaxy may have fallen short in their quest for CONCACAF Champions League glory, but after taking some time to get over that disappointment, the defending champions look every bit like a team capable of winning a third straight title.
Facing a fatigued, but still imposing Sporting Kansas City side, the Galaxy showed off the dynamic attacking soccer that was the hallmark of their most recent title run, with Landon Donovan looking like his dominating self and Robbie Keane showing the form that made him the league’s most dangerous player in the second half of 2012. The Galaxy’s impressive 2-0 victory over Sporting KC helped make them the clear choice for SBI MLS Team of the Week.
Not only did the Galaxy snap Sporting KC’s five-match shutout streak, they looked better than they have all season as they took control of a match that was wide open in the early going.
The Galaxy beat out FC Dallas and the New York Red Bulls for this week’s honors.
What did you think of the Galaxy’s performance? Which MLS team impressed you the most last week?
