Five LA Galaxy Academy players selected to Generation adidas ESP Event

By Adam Serrano

Five members of the LA Galaxy Academy will join 54 other stars from MLS academies to take part in the Generation adidas ESP Event in Portland starting this Friday.

Among the five players selected are Jose Enrique Bustamante and Ethan Zubak who played a major role in the Galaxy Under-16 side that won the U-15/16 U.S. Soccer Developmental Academy title defeating Real Salt Lake AZ earlier this month.  Joining Bustamante and Zubak are fellow U-16’s Kevin Diaz and Tyson Griffin as well as Under-14 academy goalkeeper Jordan Aldama.  

The Galaxy players and the rest of the MLS contingent will not only face each other in a series of matches, but also take on the FC Bayern Munich U-16 team as part of the festivities that will lead up to the 2014 AT&T MLS All-Star Game that will see the MLSers take on the Bayern Munich first team.
