Three staples of the Mexican National Team will put their country’s allegiance to the side, when LAFC’s Carlos Vela challenges his countrymen Giovani and Jonathan dos Santos of the LA Galaxy. With Vela in pristine form and both dos Santos brothers potentially returning from injury, these friends becoming fast foes will make for a spectacular head-to-head spectacle.
- All have been mainstays for El Tri since 2009, with Gio dos Santos’ and Vela’s first caps dating back to 2007.
- Vela has a goal and two assists in LAFC’s first two outings – both wins – this MLS season.
- Jona dos Santos has a goal and an assist, contributing to two of the Galaxy’s three total goals in 2018.
