Local fans of Mexican soccer star Chicharito (of which there are many — hundreds turned up at LAX when he first landed in LA earlier this year) will be able to see him in action Saturday for the first time. The newest LA Galaxy team member makes his debut at the home opening match against the Vancouver Whitecaps.
Yesterday, Chicharito told reporters how he's feeling at a news conference:
"Excited. Very motivated to do my best. We all have that mindset that we want to get those three points, and then build something special, from that, try to get to the playoffs and win the championship, of course."
