Chicago Fire 0-2 LA Galaxy: Fire Gets Rubbed out as Robbie Keane Strikes

Skittish would be a good way to describe the Chicago Fire’s 2-0 loss to the LA Galaxy on Sunday.

Logan Pause and the Fire had no movement on the field in front of a sellout Toyota Park crowd.

The Fire is trying to figure out how to work recently acquired Brazilian midfielder Alex into the lineup. They are also coping with the absence of midfielder Sebastian Grazzini, who left the team more than a week ago to tend to a personal matter.

However, neither situation should serve as an excuse for the Fire, who simply did not take advantage of some good scoring chances.

In the 55th minute, striker Dominic Oduro's attempt on goal went straight into the arms of Galaxy keeper Josh Saunders. It was a play that summed up the match. The Fire never had a better opportunity, despite turning up their desperation.

After the match, Fire head coach Frank Klopas downplayed the defeat, describing it as just “one game.”
