Carlos Vela gives LAFC early lead after howler from San Jose goalkeeper

Daniel Vega - San Jose Earthquakes - March 30, 2019

Carlos Vela doesn't need much help scoring these days, but he got it anyway, thanks to a play that San Jose goalkeeper Daniel Vega will quickly want to forget.

And if the goal wasn't tough enough for the Quakes to take, go back check out the extra sauce from Vela at the end.

The early goal was the last thing San Jose needed as they sought to stop a losing skid to start the season. It proved the first of three for Vela and LAFC's subsequent 5-0 win handed the Quakes their fourth loss in a row to start the season.
