LA Galaxy teammates hail Birchall performance

Mike Magee hailed LA Galaxy teammate Chris Birchall's performance in their MLS playoffs win over New York Red Bulls.

The former Port Vale midfielder was outstanding in the 2-1 win.

"Chris Birchall was an absolute beast," Magee, who scored in the win, told his club's website. "I think it took him and all of us in the midfield about 10 minutes to get our bearings, but as you can see he had (Thierry) Henry and about four other guys buzzing around in the middle of the field.

"He did an amazing job doing it by himself. You can't say enough good things about what Birchy did tonight."

Magee said he wasn't surprised at all by Birchall's standout effort.

"I've seen Birchy play for three years," Magee said, "and he's an amazing player and a guy that would be starting day in and day out for any other team."
