Star-studded Azkals-Galaxy game a success

Despite having a score of 6-1 in favor of The Major League Soccer (MLS) Cup champions- Los Angeles Galaxy, their friendly game with the Philippine National Football Teams-Azkals at the Rizal Memorial Stadium last Saturday was a success.

Meanwhile, LA Galaxy members Arena and Donovan mentioned that their team’s good play is a bit better from the condition of the Philippine team. “In the second half, I think we just wore them down.
