2016 Team of the Week (Wk 7): Dos Santos leads LA Galaxy in romp vs. Dynamo

After he suffered an injury in the season opener, no one was too sure of what to expect from Giovani dos Santos as he returned to the LA Galaxy starting lineup against the Houston Dynamo on Friday.

But the Mexican international came out flying against the Dynamo, scoring his first two goals of 2016 and snapping a five-game goalless streak in the MLS regular season. Dos Santos' two goals led to the Galaxy collecting all three points against the Dynamo, beating up on Owen Coyle's team 4-1.
