LA Galaxy began their new MLS (Major League Soccer) campaign with a win after they recorded a late goal to beat defending champions New York City FC (NYCFC) in front of their home. The target for LA Galaxy before their 2022 MLS opener against New York City FC was to start in a positive and they did just that though they had to leave it late.
It proved to be a determined win for LA Galaxy as the hunger for the win on the part of the players was evident from the start of the game. In the end, LA Galaxy were deserved winners even if the outcome of the game could have gone either way. The LA Galaxy restricted the NYCFC attack to just one shot on goal throughout the game.
La Galaxy is set to continue its tradition of attracting Europe’s big names to the MLS as Juventus star Douglas Costa is set to make the switch to the club. The tricky Brazilian winger has just six months left on his contract with Juventus, and it looks almost certain that he would be joining the American side.
Costa is currently out on loan with Gremio in his home country, but an underwhelming time at the club means he would prefer to move elsewhere. Gremio was relegated this season, and the 31-year-old does not plan on playing in the second-tier of Brazil’s league football. Costa started his career before making a move to Europe with Shakhtar Donestk in a deal worth over €6 million.

Edwards has a Green Card and is a domestic player as a result.
New LA Galaxy signing Edwards won’t have to change location as he's joining the club from city rivals LAFC having been at the MID club for the 2021 MLS season.

Gonzalez has been linked with a move back to his native Costa Rica for several weeks but LA Galaxy were unable to get a club there to pay his transfer fee with his contract scheduled to end this year.

Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic is still making headlines as one of the most likely players that will be leaving the club this summer.

LA Galaxy defender Derrick Williams has been suspended for five extra games following his red card against Portland Timbers last month.

Williams committed the offence and was deservedly sent off with one minute of the first half left to play. Portland Timbers were able to capitalise on his dismissal running out 3-0 winners at the end of the game.
