Klinsmann, Cabral help Galaxy beat Minnesota United 1-0
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Jonathan Klinsmann tied a career high with seven saves, Kévin Cabral scored for the second consecutive game and the LA Galaxy beat Minnesota United 1-0 on Saturday.
The 24-year-old Klinsmann – son of former German star and U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann – made his first start of the season.
He made several acrobatic stops, including a diving one-handed parry in the opening minutes and a pair of saves in stoppage time to close out his second shutout in five career starts.
Cabral, on the counter-attack, worked a give-and-go with Dejan Joveljic and then split a pair of defenders before slipping a roller inside the post to give the Galaxy the lead in the 43rd minute.
