Argentina: LA Galaxy and Sounders will face Boca in May

The Los Angeles Galaxy and South American powerhouse Boca Juniors will play a friendly match on May 23. Boca has won six Copa Libertadores championships and 23 Argentine championships overall, but this season they are 15th out of 20 teams in the first division, which has been a painful one for them.

Juan Roman Riquelme, a playmaker, will be traveling with the Boca team to the United States, it has been announced.

The Galaxy’s most important player, Landon Donovan, won’t be there, though, owing to responsibilities with the US national team in advance of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

On May 26, Boca will also play Seattle Sounders. The team will be the first South American one to play in Seattle since 1983 and the first from Argentina.

Even though European powerhouses Chelsea and Barcelona won’t be playing in Seattle, as they did last year, Adrian Hanauer, one of the event’s top organizers, insisted that Boca and Celtic, another participant, are “clubs from the elite.”
