Arsenal of England toured the US this summer for a number of pre-season matches before the start of the 2016/2017 Barclay’s Premiere League. The Gunners defeated their opponents, Chivas de Guadalajara, 3 – 1 at the Stubhub Center, home of MLS side LA Galaxy.
Below are a few shots from the game. All game photos are at my Flickr album.
Chivas de Guadalajara lifted the SupercopaMX trophy after 90 minutes against Veracruz in the preseason battle for a spot in the Copa Libertadores. The match, which pitted the CopaMX winners of the Apertura ’15 and Clausura ’16, gives the winner, Chivas, its first opportunity in six years to play in the prestigious South American tournament.
The game also turned out to be Omar Bravo’s final game with the Rebaño Sagrado as he announced his departure to the Carolina Railhawks of the NASL the following day. The former captain and all-time leading goalscorer with Chivas went out in style.
