CARSON, Calif. -- With Jaime Penedo away on international duty with Panama, Brian Rowe is expecting to make his third consecutive start this month against the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday.

Rowe has started the last two games in net for the Galaxy while Penedo has been way with Panama at the Copa CentroAmericana, helping the Galaxy to a 1-0-1 record while conceding just two goals. Despite Panama's inability to reach the final, Penedo stayed behind to play in the third place match against El Salvador in Los Angeles before rejoining the Galaxy. 

With Penedo away and Brian Perk starting for Galaxy II in their USL PRO playoff match against Rochester Rhinos on Sunday, Rowe is expecting to get the nod in net once more. 

"You always go into games mentally preparing yourself to start," said Rowe. "I know I’ll prepare as if I’m starting. I’ll watch the film of San Jose and get ready."

If he does in fact get the start, Rowe expects a tough test from an Earthquakes side that while struggling, boasts a number of talented attacking weapons. 

"They have [Chris] Wondolowski up there who’s great about getting into good positions finishing off balls. He always had good movement around the box, you always have to keep him in mind," said Rowe. "They got good guys going forward. It’s going to be a smaller field up there, a little tighter atmosphere. We just  have to start off the game well defensively and try and get the three points."

CARSON, Calif. -- A.J. DeLaGarza is back with the LA Galaxy. 

The club confirmed on Saturday that the defender has rejoined the team after the burial of his infant son Luca earlier in the week. DeLaGarza will be available for selection for the Galaxy's match against the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday at Buck Shaw Stadium.

The return of DeLaGarza is a major boost for the club's outside back depth as Dan Gargan is suspended for the match due to yellow card accumulation while Todd Dunivant remains injured with a groin issue. Both outside backs James Riley and Robbie Rogers are returning from injury.

MONTREAL -- The LA Galaxy will have two major absences when they take on the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday. 

Landon Donovan and Dan Gargan picked up yellow cards that will rule them out of Sunday's clash due to card accumulation. For Donovan, the suspension will cause him to miss his final game against his former club. 

After the game, Donovan admitted that he was frustrated that he picked up a yellow card for dissent. 

"I'm frustrated at myself. I should know better and I should have let it go. It's frustrating when we see a pretty clear handball that's not called and then they go down and score," said Donovan. "As a player in a game, it's frustrating, but I should know better and I should have done a better job letting it go."

Bradford Jamieson IV started as the U.S. Under-20's earned a 1-1 draw against Argentina on Tuesday in the final match of their South American excursion. 

Zach Pfeffer scored the lone goal for the Americans in the 61st minute to help the U.S. end their international trip with a 2-0-1 record. The trip was a highly successful one for Jamieson who appeared in all three matches and scored twice in the team's 3-2 victory over the Defensa y Justicia Reserves last week.

The 17-year-old Galaxy Homegrown Player will now return to Southern California where he's expected to be available for selection for Saturday's USLPRO playoff match against  the Rochester Rhinos at StubHub Center.

One day, Gyasi Zardes will like to be the leading goal scorer in MLS, but while that distinction will likely elude him this year, with his incredible goal tear this summer, he's already setting records. 

With two goals in the LA Galaxy's 6-0 victory over the Colorado Rapids, Zardes brought his goal total on the year to 14 which set the all-time single season goal tally for MLS Homegrown Players. Zardes' mark of 14 bested New England Revolution attacker Diego Fagundez, who scored 13 goals a season ago. 

In all, Zardes has scored 17 goals in all competitions this year after only scoring four times last year.

LA Galaxy forward Gyasi Zardes is one of the hottest players in MLS and on Monday, he was named to MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week. 

Zardes scored twice in the Galaxy's 6-0 victory over the Colorado Rapids. In total, Zardes has 14 goals on the season and with his brace, he broke Diego Fagundez's single-season goal mark among MLS Homegrown Players. 

Baggio Husidic and MLS Player of the Week winner Landon Donovan were named as TOTW honorable mentions.

Jamie Penedo and Panama suffered yet another disappointment in an important match. 

Blas Perez and Roberto Nurse scored to put the Panamanians up 2-0, but saw their lead fall apart in the last 15 minutes as Costa Rica scored twice -- including a Celso Borges penalty kick goal -- to earn a point in the Group B match. Perez had a chance to save the evening for the Panamanians with a penalty kick attempt, but his effort was saved by goalkeeper Patrick Pemberton to preserve the draw for the Ticos and book them a ticket to 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup. 

Despite the draw, Panama still has an opportunity to qualify for the Copa CentroAmericana final in their Group B finale against Nicaragua on Sept. 10 in Houston. If Panama can score four goals against the Central American minnows, they'll qualify for the final in place of Costa Rica and have an opportunity to qualify for the Copa America Centenario.

Robbie Keane started and went 75 minutes as Republic of Ireland kicked off their Euro 2016 campaign with a dramatic 2-1 victory over Georgia on Sunday in Tbilisi.

Everton midfielder Aiden McGeady scored twice for the Irish, including one tally in the 89th minute to seal three points on the road for The Boys in Green. Tornike Okriashvili scored the lone goal for Georgia.

In the 23rd minute, Keane played setup man on McGeady’s opening strike as he fed James McCarthy who dished it to McGeady for the opening strike. With one minute left to play and the score nodded at 1-1 after Okriashvili’s equalizer, McGeady eluded a defender and fired a left-footed rocket that gave the Irish the vital road victory.

Keane will now rejoin Galaxy ahead of their match against the Montreal Impact on Wednesday.

The Irish return to Euro 2016 qualifying action next month when they host Group D rivals Gibraltar in Dublin on Oct. 11 before traveling to face reigning World Cup champions Germany in Gelsenkirchen three days later.
