Dos Santos Has Debut Goal, Assist as Galaxy Beat Seattle 3-1
CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Giovani dos Santos had a goal and an assist in an impressive MLS debut, leading the LA Galaxy to a 3-1 victory over the Seattle Sounders on Sunday.
Dos Santos set up captain Robbie Keane's tiebreaking goal in the 47th minute before the Mexican playmaker scored his first goal in the 64th minute, taking a beautiful pass from Keane and burying his shot past Stefan Frei.
Dos Santos started up front alongside Keane and took corner kicks as the Galaxy (11-7-7) officially unveiled the newest acquisition in their star-studded lineup. Dos Santos even lived up to the standard set by Steven Gerrard, who also had a goal and an assist in his winning MLS debut last month.
The sellout crowd gave a standing ovation when dos Santos left in the 69th minute.
Seattle dropped to 10-12-2.
