Klinsmann, Cabral help Galaxy beat Minnesota United 1-0
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Jonathan Klinsmann tied a career high with seven saves, Kevin 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 (11-6-2) the lead in the 43rd minute. Joveljic, a 22-year-old Serb who signed with the club Aug. 5, made his first MLS appearance. He was replaced by Victor Vazquez in the 57th.
Minnesota dropped to 7-6-5.
