LOS ANGELES – The LA Galaxy remained level in the MLS Power Rankings presented by ECHO Outdoor Power Equipment.
The Galaxy earned their third straight win at home last Sunday when they defeated the Portland Timbers, 2-1, but did not make up any ground in the ESPN FC or MLSsoccer.com rankings. They’ll return to action on Friday when they travel to face Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
The complete Power Rankings are below:
Everything you need to know about Zlatan Ibrahimovic is summed up by the postgame interview he gave after scoring twice (both from the spot) in a 2-1 win on Sunday: "I should have scored another one. I promised myself to score three goals today." The best always think more about the goals they didn't score than the ones they did.
It wasn't perfect but it was enough for the Galaxy to win again, something Guillermo Barros Schelotto perfected at Boca Juniors. LA have had some wild games in Vancouver, and with Zlatan's status uncertain, it's hard to gauge what they'll look like on Friday.
