Next for the USWNT: Against Mexico 6 p.m. Sunday at StubHub Center in Carson. I will have more on the game in Thursday’s weekly soccer column.
Meanwhile, a disappointing week came to a disappointing end for the Galaxy in Dallas Saturday, where they surrendered a late goal and all three points.
Coach Bruce Arena took the blame:
“We didn’t do well at the end of the game, the last 15 minutes or so, and that’s my responsibility,” he said. “When a team plays that poorly on the road, they’re not well coached. We blew a lot of points this week. We could have walked away with maybe six points this week, instead we walk away with one, and that’s my responsibility. I have not done a good job with this team to get them tactically right at the end of games.”
That’s a dozen road games without a win now. Robbie Keane has missed the last six games through injury, while Arena made five changes to the starting XI. Is it too early in the year to look at the MLS standings?
Next for the Galaxy: Against Orlando at 2 p.m. Sunday in Florida live on ESPN.
