The only disappointment at the LA Galaxy home opener was the final score 2 to 1. LA Galaxy was defeated by FC Dallas, one of the most exciting teams in the league. FC Dallas is tied with Real Salt Lake for the most consecutive opening-day wins with five.
After the high energy game, LA Galaxy Head Coach Curt Onalfo provided perspective following the Galaxy’s 2-1 defeat to FC Dallas.
“I thought it was a game we shouldn’t lose. I thought we played well enough to get points out of the game. I thought our reaction….if you look at the first half, I think we’re sloppy at times. But we had some good, extended possession. We defended well for the most part, a little disjointed on a couple players but normal for this time of the season. They come out and score a quick goal. I think our reaction is excellent. And then we’re pushing the game and I’m really disappointed with the second goal we gave up. Having said that, a couple clear chances.
Jermaine [Jones]’s chance off the post, Ariel [Lassiter] has two chances and we’re dangerous. You think you have to get something out of the game, so I’m disappointed from that standpoint. But for me it’s a matter of getting better each day. We faced a very good FC Dallas team. They were the best team in the regular season last year. They were the best team in MLS and they’re better this year. We faced a very, very good team that punishes you when you make mistakes.”
