The manager of LA Galaxy was left flabbergasted after seeing the news that Dos Santos was not part of Mexico’s squad that will face off against Argentina on September 9. The Mexican attacker was not included in the friendly game that Mexico played against Trinidad and Tobago either.
Dos Santos has managed to stand out since arriving to LA Galaxy as he signed with the MLS club on July 15 of the ongoing year and so far has been one of the best players on the pitch as he scored 3 goals and provided to his teammates 6 assists during his 6 opening matches as a player of LA Galaxy.

Those of us who have been with the national team are used to this by now and we know now to adapt as quickly as possible to what a new coach wants.The good thing is that many of us know each other well and how we play already. We just have to adapt to the new philosophy of the new coach.” Continue reading LA Galaxy’s Bruce Arena is amazed at the omission of Dos Santos from Mexico
