Omar Alejandro Gonzalez has excelled on the soccer field, but now he's looking to extend his reach to the film industry with his directorial debut in "Every Dog Has Its Day."

The defender turned director released his venture into filmmaking on Sunday with a adventure film detailing the trip of six friends to an unknown land. The brief film is a true tour de force. In EDHID, we get a chance to see Omar Alejandro's skills at not only piloting a DJII drone helicopter, but also several miles of rich Rancho Palos Verdes coastline.

Omar Alejandro displays a unique talent for incorporating Mother Nature into the story line while also interspersing several exciting cameos like LA Galaxy midfielder Baggio Husidic and man on a boat. It's no surprise that Omar Alejandro's work has already earned selection into the "Brendan Hannan Film Festival" and the coveted "ACB Choice" award. 

All in all, the film is a triumph for Supporters' Shield films and has to be awarded FOUR paws up.

CARSON, Calif. -- LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena addressed the media after the Galaxy's 4-0 victory over New England Revolution. 

Arena's comments are below.

(On Landon Donovan’s performance...)

ARENA: “He was a key figure in the first goal. In the second half, I thought he was outstanding. He showed his quality in the second half. Our team, in general, played quite well in second half. Give the Red Bulls credit, they had a good 15, 20 minutes in the first half where they put a lot of pressure on the team. We got better in the second half.”

(On Robbie Keane’s performance...)

ARENA: “Good performance. Two important goals. Obviously, the first one was a classic Keane goal. Spectacular goal. Overall, very good game.”

(On Jaime Penedo’s performance...)

ARENA: “He’s improved. I think over the last six weeks he’s played very well. Tonight, I think, he made a bunch of key saves in the first half to prevent the Red Bulls from getting back into the game. Like anyone else, [Jaime had to improve] a little bit in every area. He’s just gotten better. His confidence has improved. He’s feet have gotten better. He’s very good coming off his line on a couple of plays tonight.”

(On Landon Donovan tying the all-time assist record...)

ARENA: “Rarely do you see a player with the combination of being able to score goals and create goals. Those qualities are excellent. He used to be, I thought, purely a goal scorer. He’s a much better creator now. He’s a good passer of the ball. He’s improved. He’s gotten better. Him and Robbie [Keane] have been responsible for bring Gyasi [Zardes] along. I think their ability to pass and move is critical to our success.”

(On the remaining games of the season...)

ARENA: “I don’t want to do anything differently. We want to try and keep getting better as a team. There is certainly a bunch of challenging games ahead. We are playing teams to close out the season that all are important. Toronto is fighting for a playoff spot. Dallas is jocking for a good position. And obviously, Seattle is with us battling for the first spot. All these games mean something.”

CARSON, Calif. -- Bradford Jamieson IV enjoyed a stellar season in USL PRO, but it was not good enough to win the 2014 Rookie of the Year award. 

USL PRO announced their 2014 awards and Rochester Rhinos goalkeeper John McCarthy was awarded the Rookie of the Year award and the Goalkeeper of the Year honor for his season with Rochester. During his first season in USL PRO, McCarthy recorded an impressive 10 shutouts in 18 appearances for the Rhinos. By comparison, Jamieson tallied five goals for Los Dos in their first season. 

In addition to McCarthy winning the two honors Orlando City SC's Kevin Molino took home Most Valuable Player, Sacramento Republic's Nemanja Vukovic won Defender of the Year while Republic head coach Preki won Coach of the Year. 

After the announcement of the awards, Jamieson commended McCarthy on his performance on Twitter.

CARSON, Calif. – Two titans of MLS will likely play their final match against one another on Sunday when Landon Donovan’s LA Galaxy faces off against Thierry Henry’s New York Red Bulls.  

The similarities for the two players are easy to see: both players are stars for their club teams and the leading goal scorers for their respective national sides. While Donovan has pledged to hang up his boots at the end of the 2014 season, speculation has swirled that Henry will end his own storied career at the end of the year—a fact that he has denied.

Even if Henry stays with New York another year, Donovan says that he is relishing what may be his final chance to face the French maestro.

“Sometimes we forget how special his career has been. When you’re caught up in the moment and you’re caught up in the game, you just see him as an opponent to stop. But when you think about it historically, it’s pretty special that we get to play against him,” said Donovan. “We’re certainly not in awe of him when we’re playing, but when you step back and take a look at his career, it’s special that we get to play against a player of his caliber.”

But will Sunday’s match be the last time that the Red Bulls face the Galaxy this year? Donovan hopes not.

“Hopefully, it’s not the last time. Hopefully they see us again in December,” Donovan said. “We’ve had very different careers, but he’s meant a lot to French Football, Arsenal and the Red Bulls. He’s brought them back to prominence after a longtime of not being a prominent team on the national scope. It’s been impressive what they’ve done with him and I’m going to try to enjoy the last encounter.”
