LA Galaxy Academy Raul Mendiola becoming a «complete player» and «complete person»


CARSON, Calif. He won’t be taking the field during Saturday’s match against D.C. United or any time soon for the LA Galaxy, but one of the Galaxy Academy’s highest touted players Raul Mendiola is starting to blossom.

Mendiola started and went 90 minutes during LA’s scoreless draw with the Colorado Rapids reserves on Sunday. Known for his skill with the ball and his impressive displays going forward, the 19-year-old put forth perhaps his most mature performance for the Galaxy reserves. In addition to his characteristic ability to make darting runs behind the defense and combine with the forwards, Mendiola performed aptly on defense as he was able to negate Colorado’s ability to create along the right side of midfield.
