SAN JOSE, Costa Rica— LA Galaxy Homegrown defender Oscar Sorto will make his competitive first team debut for the club in Wednesday’s CONCACAF Champions League match against C.S. Cartaginés.
Sorto was included in the starting XI for LA’s vital CCL fixture by head coach Bruce Arena that will see him man the right side of defense behind midfielder Michael Stephens. With the defender limited to just reserve game and International Champions Cup appearances, Sorto is geared up to make his LA debut.
“Bruce has given me the opportunity to start and right now I’m just going to picture how the game is going to go and hopefully I can do well,” said Sorto. “We’re expecting them to press us a lot and we’re going to just try to keep the game close and not concede goals. If we get a chance, we want to score.
“It’s going to be a big role for me because we know what we have to do to move on to quarterfinals, so I’ll just be as concentrated as I can be. Hopefully, we get a result.”
