Greg Vanney condemns LA Galaxy after shock defeat to USL Sacramento Republic

In a shocking twist, LA Galaxy is out of the US Open Cup.

The MLS giants lost 2-1 to USL Championship side Sacramento Republic on Tuesday night at Dignity Health Spots Park as strikes from Rodrigo Lopez and Luis Felipe Hernandez canceled out Conor Donovan’s own goal and propelled the underdogs to the semifinals. 

The defeat came as a bombshell after the Galaxy triumphed over rivals LAFC to reach the quarterfinals.

Galaxy head coach Greg Vanney didn’t hold back when expressing disappointment, highlighting the players’ lack of intensity and unwillingness to fight for the win.

“We didn’t play with the same intensity tonight as we did against LAFC, as an example, or [in] some of the other games and that can’t happen. Every time, we’ve got to play with that. That’s one of the reasons why we went for it, is to have the emotion that is involved in a night like tonight good, bad or indifferent. Now we have to deal with it.”
