MLS Regular Season
Semana tras semana, FutbolMLS.com evalúa el rendimiento del talento latino de la MLS, y selecciona a los candidatos del ‘Latino de la Jornada’, con el fin de que la afición elija a su mejor jugador de la fecha. Fredy Montero (Seattle Sounders), Boniek García (Houston Dynamo), Mauro Rosales (Seattle Sounders) y Felipe (Montreal Impact) son los candidatos de la jornada 22 de la MLS.
SEATTLE – Before Fredy Montero could walk off the field after being substituted in the 73rd minute on Sunday, Eddie Johnson made sure to give his Sounders teammate a big hug.
The embrace seemed to say much about their evolving relationship, a key component in Seattle's resounding 4-0 victory over the LA Galaxy. Not only had Montero and Johnson both scored in the same game for the first time since May 19, but the duo worked off each other and created chances for one another in a way they hadn’t before.
LO BUENO: La recuperación de Eddie Johnson
Houston et Seattle sont les deux seules équipes à ne pas avoir perdu au cours de leurs six dernières rencontres. Toutes deux ont remporté leur match au sommet ce week-end et se replacent dans le peloton de tête.
HOUSTON — After moving into first place with a decisive 2-0 win over the New York Red Bulls, it is understandable if the Houston Dynamo stop and smell the roses a bit.
However, they don’t have time to rest on their laurels. The return match of this midseason home-and-home series looms this Friday, when Houston will travel to Red Bull Arena to face the same hungry, now second-place NYRB.
HIGHLIGHTS: Houston 2, New York 0
COMMERCE CITY, Colo. — At a training session last week, Colorado Rapids defender Hunter Freeman asked reporters within earshot to begin referring to Rapids midfielder Brian Mullan as “the champ.”
The LA Galaxy's worst loss in more than four years stung, to be sure, but the vanquished were philosophical afterward, crediting luck and officiating – along with a subpar performance – for their result in Seattle.
“Obviously, not pleased with the result,” Galaxy coach Bruce Arena told media following a 4-0 takedown against the Sounders in a critical Western Conference showdown Sunday night. “We played a good first half. I think it was a little unfortunate, because if a few calls went our way, it could have made a difference in the game.
SEATTLE – The only team the Seattle Sounders say they were making a statement to was themselves.
It’s probably safe to say a few others probably noticed as well, though.
With a crowd of more than 60,000 and a national TV audience watching, the Seattle Sounders scored a 4-0 takedown of the LA Galaxy on Sunday. The Galaxy had entered this game having gone unbeaten in their last five and riding a 10-game run in which they had gone 7-2-1.
