Seattle Sounders midfielder, Los Angeles native Cristian Roldan relishes big performance over Galaxy

Sunday night’s 3-1 Seattle Sounders win over the LA Galaxy was quite the homecoming for midfielder Cristian Roldan. The Pico Rivera, Calif., native grew up just outside Los Angeles and went to Dignity Health Sports Park as a kid to watch the Galaxy play. He was inspired to try and one day play professionally in that stadium, and on Sunday he scored his first two career goals there.

“To be able to play in L.A., there are difference circumstances with my family not here [because of COVID-19 restrictions], but it’s extra special,” said Roldan.
