In the thrilling LAFC vs Philadelphia Union match, Jacob Glesnes' goal stole headlines. Three minutes after the LAFC vs Philadelphia kicked off the second half with a 1-1 scoreline, the centre-back shot a Roberto Carlos-like free-kick into the top left corner, giving opposition goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer no chance to save it. However, the Jakob Glesnes goal couldn't lead Philadelphia Union to a win over Carlos Vela's LAFC, with the match ending in a 3-3 draw. Carlos Vela, who was the MLS MVP last season, equalised for LAFC before half-time, which was his 50th MLS goal. Carlos Vela's goal made him the third-fastest to 50 MLS goals and the Mexican would look to continue his rich vein of form.
