Aaron Rodgers Gives Huge Retirement Hint

On Wednesday night at BMO Stadium, Carlos Vela and LAFC showed why they are the current MLS champions.

After skipping the first round and beating FC Juarez 7-1, the Black and Gold entered their first Leagues Cup.

Kellyn Acosta's attempt from a corner kick found the back of the net in the 31st minute thanks to a deflection off Ryan Hollingshead's head.

After only two minutes, LAFC doubled their lead thanks to the inspiration of their franchise player, Carlos Vela, who capitalized on a weak rebound by goalkeeper Ramon Pasquel.

The ball at the mercy of the 'Bomber' who merely softly pumped the ball to score a beautiful goal.

When Oscar Ortega headed a corner kick in the 47th minute, leaving Amaury Escoto unmarked, it looked like the Liga MX squad was finally getting going in the second half.

However, the response was short-lived, as the defending MLS champions recovered their two-goal advantage only five minutes later when Acosta again finished off a fine cross headed in by Dénis Bouanga. 

LAFC scored again just five minutes later. Buoanga scored his second goal of the night with a right-footed strike, putting the score at 5-1 thanks to an unbelievable no-look pass from Carlos Vela.

Bouanga scored his triple trick for LAFC in the 78th minute on a penalty kick, despite the absence of Vela.
