With the Puerto Rico Islanders victory over Isidro Metapán on Thursday, the LA Galaxy sealed their berth in the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals.
However, the job is far from done for the Galaxy as LA still has one match left to play on October 25 against Metapán in El Salvador. That match will be vital in terms of the seeding process that will determine which the match ups for the quarterfinals.
Following practice on Thursday, rookie midfielder Rafael Garcia discussed qualification and the second team's role in the match in El Salvador.
GARCIA: "It's very nice, now we just need to do the work and take care of business over there, that way that the whole seeding process will benefit us in the long run. We're thinking about going out there and getting a win. For us younger players, just knowing that we helped in the process is definitely a great feeling and it's not going to be easy since it is a hostile environment there, but we just have to go out there and do our best so we can hopefully get that win."
