CARSON, Calif. -- The LA Galaxy are unbeaten in their last four matches without the injured Robbie Keane but despite the unbeaten run, LA's offense has been lacking without the reigning Major League Soccer Most Valuable Player in the lineup. 

Since Keane went down with a groin strain in LA's defeat to Vancouver Whitecaps FC back on April 4, the Galaxy have racked up a 2-0-2 record but have only once scored more than two goals. In Saturday's 1-1 draw with the Colorado Rapids, the Galaxy attack appeared listless as the visitors high pressure prevented LA's midfield from connecting with strikers Bradford Jamieson IV and Gyasi Zardes. In the end, it was Alan Gordon once again playing the saivour as he notched a goal in the 75th minute to help LA earn the result. 

Although the Galaxy were able to get a point against the Rapids, the question must be asked, do they miss Robbie Keane? After the match, Zardes provided an answer. 

"Robbie is a phoenomonal player and, yes, he's gone but at the same time, we're professionals. As he's gone we're training with the guys we have. ... Which ever 11 that we have on the field, we're prepared to play."

Andrew Carleton scored twice for the Americans in the first half before Tim Weah (son of soccer great George Weah) scored the tournament winner to give the U.S. U-15's the victory on Friday in Gradisca d'Isonzo, Italy.. The U.S. qualified for the final by defeating host nation Italy in a penalty kick shootout that featured a save from Lopez to help the Americans best the Italian U-15 squad.

CARSON, Calif. -- The Montreal Impact fell short of becoming the first team from Major League Soccer to lift the CONCACAF Champions League by dropping a 5-3 aggregate result to Club America in the CONCACAF Champions League final. 

The Impact went into the first half ahead 1-0 but the reigning Liga MX champions roared back with four goals in the second half to lift the contintential trophy for a record sixth time. Even though the league rallying behind the Impact, Galaxy defender A.J. DeLaGarza admits that he was -- somewhat -- pleased that Montreal did not become the first MLS team to win the Champions League.

"I wasn't rooting for them, but I wasn't rooting against them," DeLaGarza said. "I wanted to be the first to five [MLS Cups] and now I want to be the first to win the CONCACAF Champions League. At the same time, they were in a position to win and you wonder if they scored one more goal like they could have, the game would have been different. But America also had their chances so it's a bit of give and take."

DeLaGarza and the Galaxy will have their chance to become the first MLS team to win the CCL this summer when the 2015-16 tournament begins. Although the club is placing a high priority on the tournament, DeLaGarza understands that achieving continential dominence won't be easy

"I think that we should have always shot. It's always a difficult tournament when it's split up but, at the end of the day, it's a tournament where the Mexicans have had the better of the play for awhile now," said DeLaGarza. "We have to start turning things around as a league to show that we can get better. It won't be easy but we just have to win."

CARSON, Calif. -- LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena says Robbie Keane and Jose Villarreal are "not likely" to feature in this weekend's clash with the Colorado Rapids.

The Colorado match will be the fourth consecutive game that Keane has missed with a groin strain while Villarreal reinjured his right hamstring during his participation with the U.S. Under-23's last week. In Keane's absence, the Galaxy have performed ablely, complying a 2-0-1 in three matches. 

"I'm not spending a whole lot of time worrying about them. When they're ready, they're ready," Arena said on Thursday. "We can't worry about it right now, we'll see. Every day tells us a little bit more."

CARSON, Calif. -- The eyes of Major League Soccer will turn to Olympic Stadium in Montreal on Wednesday night as the Montreal Impact seek to become the first Major League Soccer club to win the CONCACAF Champions League when they host Liga MX side Club America in the second leg of the CCL Final. 

Montreal find themselves level on aggregate with the Mexican giants after earning a crucial 1-1 draw at the Estadio Azteca last week. If the score holds, the Impact would win the series by virtue of their away goal. With the Impact inching closer to a continential title, folks from across MLS have rushed to support the Impact, much like they did back in 2011 when Real Salt Lake fell just short in the CCL final against Monterrey. 

After LA Galaxy training on Wednesday, Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena, who won the 1998 CONCACAF Champions Cup with D.C. United. was asked if Montreal winning the CCL represented a step forward for MLS. 

"It'd be a move forward, I don't know what means but it would be a move forward. I would say that's certainly an argument that you'd have," Arena said. "Personally, I think those things only can be discussed over time not in a short period of time. If we didn't have another team [in the CCL Final] for another 10 years, it wouldn't say a whole lot. It'd be nice to see our league consistently compete to be in the World Club championships."

David Beckham, the man considered by many to have changed the landscape of Major League Soccer, will be celebrating his 40th birthday this Saturday. And since, you probably can't get on the guest list at his lavish party this weekend, we'll have to commerate Becks' big day in other ways. 

In honor of the former LA Galaxy midfielder and global soccer icon's milestone birthday on May 2, Bleacher Report have commissioned a digital art gallery entitled "The Art of David Beckham." The photo set commerates every aspect of Beckham's life both on and off the field. Throughout the gallery, Beckham's journey to iconic status is chronicled: his successes at Manchester United and Real Madrid, his time as the captain of the English National Team, his marriage to his wife Victoria, and of course, his iconic -- and ever changing -- hairstyles. 

The piece below was created by MLSsoccer.com's graphic designer Gabriel De Los Rios salutes "the culmination of Beckham's American dream" when he helped lead the LA Galaxy to their MLS Cup titles in 2011 and 2012.

CARSON, Calif. -- Former LA Galaxy midfielder Marcelo Sarvas will not suit up for the Colorado Rapids against his old club this weekend after the Rapids announced that the Brazilian midfielder will miss the next four to six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery

Sarvas' surgery was performed on Monday in Los Angeles to repair a right knee issue that had been plaguing the 33-year-old Brazilian for several weeks. 

According to the Denver Post, Sarvas will remain in Los Angeles as he recovers which means that it could be possible for the Galaxy to honor the two-time MLS Cup champion at some stage during Saturday's game.

LA Galaxy center back Omar Gonzalez was rewarded for a strong defensive performance in the LA Galaxy's 1-1 draw with the New York Red Bulls with a place in MLSsoccer.com's Team of the Week, the league announced on Monday. 

Throughout the match Gonzalez stifled New York's Bradley Wright-Phillips, winning several key duels that helped render the Englishman ineffective on the night. Joining Gonzalez on the Team of the Week squad is goalkeeper Jamie Penedo who was placed on the team's bench after his three save performance at Red Bull Arena. 

Not included was 18-year-old goal scorer Bradford Jamieson IV, but the teenager's brilliant first career MLS goal is up for MLSsoccer.com's Goal of the Week.

HARRISON, N.J. -- LA Galaxy midfielder Juninho suffered a crunching challenge late in the Galaxy's 1-1 draw with New York Red Bulls but the Brazilian midfielder is hopeful that he'll be healthy in time for next week's match with Colorado. 

The challenge came in the dying moments of the second half when Red Bulls captain Dax McCarty made a late tackle to prevent the Brazilian from firing a shot on the top of the New York penalty area.

"He was late and everyone saw that. I was ready to make the shot when he came and tackled me," said Juninho. "I think that we should have pressed the referee and tried to convince him to give the red card. ... I'm definitely looking forward to our next game because the Red Bulls are a good rival. 

"The draw wasn't a bad result, we have a team to come back and make more points." 

After the match, Juninho was spotted speaking the media with an ice pack on his right leg, but was confident that he'll be healthy by next weekend.

"I got a hurt a little bit, the tackle was hard," said Juninho. "But I have all week to get better."
