CARSON, Calif. – Marcelo Sarvas is back from injury and ready to be called upon for the LA Galaxy.

The Brazilian has been sidelined since suffering a sprained medial collateral ligament left knee since last month, but has been steadily regaining fitness even going 60 minutes in LA Galaxy II’s 5-0 victory over the Oklahoma City Energy FC on Sunday.  Sarvas faces a challenge if he'll return to the starting lineup for Sunday's match against the Chicago Fire, however, as Kenny Walker and Juninho have formed a strong partnership in the Galaxy's two-game winning streak. 

Although Sarvas declared himself fit and ready to go after suiting up for Los Dos, he is leaving the final decision to Arena.

“I feel good. Bruce will decide [if I can play]. I just want to be with the 18,” said Sarvas. “Getting on the field is another thing.”

CARSON, Calif. – The LA Galaxy will be without the services of Robbie Keane for their June 8 match against Chivas USA after the forward told reporters on Thursday that he will be reporting for the Republic of Ireland’s friendlies against Costa Rica and Portugal in the United States.

Keane told reporters that he’ll join up with the Irish National Team in Philadelphia ahead of their match against Costa Rica at PPL Park on June 6, following the Galaxy’s match against the Chicago Fire on Sunday at Toyota Park. Ireland will take on the United States’ Group G opponent Portugal on June 10 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Although the callup will force Keane to miss the Galaxy’s final game before the international break, the Galaxy captain said that the conversations between club and country went smoothly.

“Really, I should have been gone for four games because international teams have a priority in these situations when it is an international fixture on the schedule,” said Keane. “Ireland and Bruce spoke and they were happy if I played two games for the Galaxy and miss the Chivas game, that way I was missing two for Ireland and playing two for Ireland.

“I’m grateful for both teams and it’s one of those situations where I have to sit back and let the teams discuss it,” he added. “Of course, I want to be in both places and playing for both, but unfortunately, the way that schedule works. At the same time, it’s a good chance for [younger] players in Ireland to get games and experience.”

The stellar performances of Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane against the Philadelphia Union earned the LA Galaxy strikers a place on MLSsoccer.com’s Team of the Week.

Donovan, who tallied two goals – including the record breaking goal No. 135 that cemented him as MLS regular season goal king – in the victory was also named as MLS’ Player of the Week by the North American Soccer Reporters. Keane notched a goal and two assists in the victory to bring his scoring total to seven goals and three assists in the 2014 MLS regular season.

In addition to the Galaxy strikers, Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena was named as the coach for MLSsoccer.com’s Team of the Week squad.

USL PRO announced on Tuesday that LA Galaxy II forward Chandler Hoffman and midfielder Bradford Jamieson IV had been named to USL PRO's Team of the Week for week 10. 

Both Hoffman and Jamieson tallied a brace in Los Dos' impressive 5-0 victory over Oklahoma City Energy FC on Sunday. The goals give Hoffman seven on the season, which places him in second place on the USL PRO scoring charts. Meanwhile, Jamieson's tallies were his first of his professional career. 

In my latest story for LAGalaxy.com, I speak to Jamieson and Los Dos head coach Curt Onalfo about the player's stellar development as of late.

CARSON, Calif. -- LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena addressed the media following the team's 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union

Check it out below...

(On Landon Donovan breaking the record...)

“It was very nice. I think that the one who really wanted the hug was really me. I wanted to congratulate him. I’m real happy for him. It’s an unbelievable milestone for any athlete. It’s a great accomplishment. We are grateful to have him here. I know it takes a little pressure off him not having to worry about that record now. Others can chase him for the rest of his life.”

(On the team’s performance...)

ARENA: “I don’t think we played well in the first half. Second half we played better, but it was a good performance. Philadelphia played us real hard. To get that second goal early in the second half was important. It broke their back a little bit. Second half we played a very good 30 to 35 minutes.”

(On Leonardo’s performance...)

ARENA: “I thought he performed quite well today. Obviously, the goal was a big part of our success today. He had surgery two weeks ago. I don’t know if anyone knew. He had a compound fracture. We really brought him along slowly over the last two weeks. He was in a good frame of mind to play today. He’s thrilled with his performance. Leo’s grown a lot as a player. It’s great to see him perform today, coming back from that injury. I think it’s going to give him a lot of confidence."
