Pretty much all you need to know about last night playoff clash in the Emeralds is right here:
A tremendous strike from the man that only played 38 minutes at World Cup 2010.
Galaxy head home up 1-nil while Seattle is left to contemplate how to unlock the Galaxy defense that showed true steel through heady youngster A.J. De La Garza early on, but just functioned well as a unit.
Since I’ve harangued him on this issue–good move by Bruce Arena sacrificing Buddle for Jovan Kirovski late in the game–the man needed a break and the Galaxy were merely going to be in prevent defense mood.
