Despite opening day win, LA Galaxy can get better says Ishizaki

Stefan Ishizaki suggests the LA Galaxy can improve a lot from their 2-0 win over the Chicago Fire on Friday night.

The 2014 MLS champions opened up the new season with a routine result at the StubHub Center courtesy of second-half goals from Jose Villarreal and Robbie Keane.

However, Swedish midfielder Ishizaki - who played a key role in the opening goal - believes Bruce Arena's men can be more efficient in the attacking third.

"I think we played really well until we came into the last third. We struggled a little bit there," said Ishizaki.

"We could have been a lot cleaner and been a lot better.

"I think it's a little bit of opening night (nerves)," he added.

"You could see there were some nerves, some mistakes we probably wouldn't make in the middle of the season. But I think we played fairly well."
