LA Galaxy 2 Toronto 2

LA were pegged back from winning this game twice, by the same player - no less person than Alan Gordon returning to The Home Depot Centre as part of the Toronto team.
The Galaxy struck early with a goal for Chris Birchall in the second minute of the game. Plenty of chances came and went for both sides in the first half, but the Galaxy led 1-0 at half-time, Beckham earning himself yet another booking for a reckless tackle. Gordon joined the fray as a substitute in the closing minutes of the first half.
On 68 minutes Gordon struck his first goal, given space to head past a hapless Josh Saunders from close range. La went ahead again right on the 90 minute mark as Angel smashed a loose ball straight, low and true from around the edge of the box right into the left hand corner of the goal.
Galaxy's jubilation was short-lived as with literally 20 seconds left on the clock, Gordon picked up a headed clearance and struck it sweetly from the left side of the goal into the opposite top corner.
What this tells us is that the Galaxy's defence is still somewhat short of where it should be, however with Donovan on the road, LA are still finding chances to score and are scoring well. Beckham worked hard all the evening keeping things flowing from mid-field, the new central position suits him and gives him a lot more influence on the game.
