Los Angeles Galaxy vs. Sporting Kansas City: Rating the Galaxy Players

The lack of David Beckham played a major factor in the Los Angeles Galaxy's 1-0 defeat to Sporting Kansas City, although to their credit, they held their own on defense.

This time, it was the offensive punch that went AWOL, as the Galaxy failed to get a shot on goal.
