Galaxy tour to include Jakarta
Indonesia became the latest stop on the Los Angeles Galaxy's Asia Pacific tour on Wednesday, when the Major League Soccer club announced they would play a match on 30 November in Jakarta.
The Galaxy, featuring English star midfielder David Beckham, hope to capture the MLS playoff crown and bring the 36-year-old playmaker a championship in his last season with the squad in the MLS Cup Final on 20 November in Los Angeles.
Ten days later, the Galaxy will face an all-star line-up from the Indonesia Super League at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium.
The Galaxy will then visit Manila to face the Philippines national team at Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila on 3 December and stop in Australia on 6 December to meet A-League club Melbourne Victory.
In their first Asian tour since 2008, the Galaxy will try to improve on a record of 2-3 with four drawn in matches on Asian soil. The Galaxy lost their only prior matches in Australia in 2007 and last year.
