Fire, Galaxy rosters revealed ahead of inaugural Leagues Cup

By

The inaugural Leagues Cup will kick off on July 23, and two MLS clubs will debut in the competition.

The Chicago Fire and Los Angeles Galaxy enter the MLS-versus-Liga MX tournament in very different positions in their respective conferences this season, however, the Leagues Cup will offer another opportunity to play competitive matches against Mexico’s best teams.

Bastian Schweinsteiger and the Fire will kick off the Leagues Cup against Cruz Azul on Tuesday, before Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the Galaxy face Club Tijuana later in the evening.

Cruz Azul is coming off an opening match draw against Necaxa in Apertura play, and features Peru international and former Orlando City SC midfielder Yoshimar Yotun.

Meanwhile, former Houston Dynamo attacker Erick “Cubo” Torres plays for Club Tijuana, who enters the Leagues Cup coming off a 3-1 victory against Puebla.
