Ibrahimovic captures the first Los Angeles Derby

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who left Manchester United, has joined the new club for LA Galaxy, and it is very likely that the Swede will immediately make his debut. What is extraordinary in this derby is the fact that the teams meet for the first time.

The Galaxy is somewhat distant from the town life, and the LAFC is located in the heart of the city. Galaxy is the crown jewel of the MLS, one of the ten clubs that made the league and won the most in this league. LAFC is a “new boy in the city” and plays for the first season in the MLS, writes Soccer24.ee.

Fans are also very motivated, although the derby is based on the usual history, incidents and moments that define the confrontation forever. This confrontation does not have history, incidents or special moments – it’s just the knowledge that this city will no longer automatically belong to Galaxy. “I’m not proud of the Galaxy, I’m not just a Galaxy fan and I’m in favor of the LAFC,” said Rafa Gomez, LA Times.

Also, ticket sales are rivalry: when the LAFC announced that in their July home derby game only 100 tickets will be allocated to the opposing fans – the minimum that can be deducted from the MLS for the opposing fans, the Galaxy replied the same: on Saturday, 100 LAFC fans will be in the stadium. But it does not dampen the audience number – the game has been sold out, and yesterday it was sold at an additional $ 1,000 on the aftermarket.

Goalkeeper expelled for urinating in full play

The unusual happened in Italy: a goalkeeper was ordered to be expelled for urinating in full play. It was at the Igea Virtus-Messina, a derby from Sicily, Italy, to count for the D-Series, group I, on Sunday.

The protagonist of the story is called Armando Prisco and the explanation for such a pressing need lies in the combination of two factors: the 21-year-old keeper drinks a lot of water (three liters a day) and was not prepared to enter suddenly – at the beginning of the second part.

“I drank water when we went into the stadium, before the warm-up, at the beach, at half-time and in the second half,” he told journalist Gianluca Di Marzio. I could not stand it. I was moving like crazy and when the game stopped for a substitution I tried to take advantage of it: I pretended that I was stretching behind a banner. No one noticed, except for the referee, “he said, not mea culpa.

“I apologized immediately and did not protest. I know that the judge has complied with the regulations [Act 12 for ‘offensive or crude gestures’], but I want to make it clear that I did nothing obscene. I knew there were a lot of kids in the stadium and I did everything to camouflage the situation, “he said, promising never to repeat the cute thing that earned him three games of punishment:” I’ll take it for a second time. I’m 21 years old and I’m not incontinent yet. ”

As a matter of curiosity: when Prisco was expelled Messina had already made three substitutions. A central inside and the game ended 0-0.
