CARSON, Calif. (AP) Daniel Salloi and Johnny Russell scored five minutes apart in the second half in Sporting Kansas City’s 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy on Sunday night.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic came on as a substitute in the 62nd minute but could not repeat the heroics from his MLS debut last Saturday, when he helped rally the Galaxy from a two-goal deficit to beat LAFC.
Ibrahimovic had a breakaway in extra time, but defender Ike Opara recovered in time to pressure the Swedish forward so his shot was not on goal.
Russell sliced through two defenders and beat goalkeeper David Bingham 1-on-1 to the far post in the 61st minute for his second goal.
Sporting KC opened the scoring in the 56th minute when Jonathan dos Santos headed a corner down to Salloi, and he put it in at the near post. It was Salloi’s first goal of the season.
ORLANDO CITY 3, TIMBERS 2
