MLS: LA Galaxy 3-1 Seattle Sounders

Reactions after the game Giovani Dos Santos:

“We have a great team with a great attitude, with great players. We’re looking forward to doing a great year, and, hopefully, we can get a title. We can achieve every goal we want. I’m coming off an injury, and obviously, as I play more games and in these coming two weeks I am sure I will be in my best form. I will become fitter with more games and during training, and little by little, I will be recovering my best level, and it will be better for me and for the team.”

Coach Bruce Arena:

We have a long way to go …,” he said. “I don’t know what we’re supposed to envision, but it’ll take some time with our group playing together. … I think already [Dos Santos’] chemistry with his teammates is good, and he’s going to be a terrific player.”

“You could certainly see signs of it today …,

Robbie Keane:

“Listen, when you score a goal, and I’m sure he’s going to get that assist as well, I mean, what more do you want from him? He’s obviously not 100 percent fit — he’s probably about 80 — [but] the last 20 minutes of the first half, you could see little signs where we’re getting the ball into Gio’s feet quickly, and it was causing some problems. You seen a few combinations there today that suggest going forward could be good once everybody is on the same page.”

Brad Evans – Seattle Sounders captain:

“First half, I thought the team did really well. Guys were fighting for each other, playing in balls behind, winning second balls, getting corner kicks, getting fouls. That was the gameplan and we stuck to it and it worked to our advantage in the first half.

“Second half, things just kind of snowballed. Tired legs, it’s hot and once a team gets up a goal or two, they can just knock the ball. But credit to them, they’re a good team.”
