Youth soccer players watch MLS Cup looking for hopes and dreams to be a pro player someday.
Both MLS players Gyasi Zardes of the LA Galaxy and Chris Tierney of the New England Rev’s, watched
as young players hoping to play in this big of a match someday, and that day was now Dec 7th. Both
teams ready after highly contested playoff matches with slight edge in goals scored to make 2014
MLS Cup one to remember. Robbie Keane becomes the Galaxy savior with an extra time strike that
put the StubHub center into a fevered pitch, then to hoist the cup for the fifth time after a 2-1 Galaxy win.
Robbie Rogers had a great shot under two minutes into the match but the Rev’s cleaned up an early
mistake to keep it 0-0 into the 52nd minute mark. Then Zardes took a great cross into the six yard
line box area and tucked away a beautiful shot to put the Galaxy up and Landon Donovan only 68
minutes away another Cup trophy. However the Rev’s were not out of it, many great chances and
alot of pressure on LA ‘s goalie Jaime Penedo, finally Chris Tierney broke the shut out with an amazing
touch to send the Rev fans into great relief tied at 1-1, 78th minute. Many more chances both sides for
the next 12 minutes, Lee Nguyen gets so bad leg cramps has to go off, Jermaine Jones probably
couldn’t play much better, and Patrick Mullins all had a great match for the Rev’s but it wasn’t enough
to stop Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane from completing their magical year of playing the come
back kids. Keane’s strike in the 111th minute showed why consider him the most dangerous big
game scorer in the MLS for the last 4 years. Rev’s played great, Bobby Shuttleworth the Rev’s keeper
played amazing, it just seemed like the LA Galaxy quest to send off Donovan with an amazing finish
to a great career was the energy needed by the TEAM to win it all. Good luck Landon Donovan in your
next adventure, your team gave you a proper send off, no than the US Men’s team did. For any youth
soccer players watching MLS Cup, watch Dovovan, he is a class act and good role model.
