The Spanish Riqui Puig made his debut this Wednesday as a scorer in the MLS with a splendid shot in the 89th minute that served to that the LA Galaxy, led by Mexican Javier 'Chicharito' Hernández, rescued 'in extremis' a 2-2 draw at Toronto FC.

With this result, Galaxy has gone four games in a row without losing (two wins and two draws). In his third game with the Galaxy since arriving from Barcelona earlier this month, Puig, who started for the second consecutive game, stood alone at the edge of the area and sent the ball into the top corner to make it 2-2.
The Spanish was not the only great goal of this meeting. The Brazilian Douglas Costa put the Galaxy ahead in the 24th minute with a fabulous free kick goal after a good start by the Angelenos with Riqui Puig and his compatriot Víctor Vázquez in charge of operations.
After the restart, Federico Bernardeschihe scored in the 55th minute with an acrobatic shot from the far post for Toronto but the goal was disallowed for offside. On the next play, Chicharito had the sentence for the Galaxy but was unable to take advantage of a great ball served by Mexican-American Julián Araujo.
The tie for the local team came in the 62nd minute courtesy of the Spaniard Jesús Jiménez, who had entered the field a minute earlier and finished off a 'death pass' by Ifunanyachi Achara. Toronto grew from that goal in a game that at that point was already broken and with both teams looking for the go-ahead goal.
The Canadian team achieved it in the 80th minute through Bernardeschi, who forced a penalty from Raheem Edwards that he himself was responsible for transforming. The Toronto fans were already savoring the victory but Puig, with his amazing goal, was responsible for saving a point for the Galaxy.
Chicharito, what an actor…
One of the actions that caught the party's attention involved Chicharito. The Mexican striker faked a supposed lack of his rivals, but in a theatrical way that has earned all the ridicule on social networks.
