The Galaxy played well but could not find the net against Cartagines who are the sub-champions of the Summer league in Costa Rica.
Once Landon Donovan subbed into the game at the 60th minute, the scoring began. Donovan assisted both goals.
This was the first game for the LA Galaxy in the 2013-2014 CONCACAF Champions League in which they are in a three-team group, Group 8. The other team in Group 8 is Isidro Metapan from El Salvador.
The Galaxy will face Isidro Metapan on September 18. Also, the Salvadoran team is still looking for a victory as they lost their first match against Cartagines.
Only the winner from each group, eight in total, advances to the quarter-finals. So far, the LA Galaxy is in first.
