It took three-years for Los Angeles FC to be born into Major League Soccer. It took several hours on Sunday for the franchise to pick up their first win.

Los Angeles FC defeated the Seattle Sounders FC, 1-0, at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Wash.

LAFC only had five shots in the game. However, it was Diego Rossi’s goal in the 11th minute that would end up being the game-winner.

Rossi, who was making his LAFC debut after playing for Peñarol in Uruguay, was LAFC’s only shot on goal in the game.

Sounders FC took 22 shots in the game. Seattle, who had possession for 60% of the game, according to the stats, had seven shots on goal.

Sounders FC’s Tony Alfaro received a red card in the 83rd minute. His teammate Nouhou Tolo also received a yellow card.

LAFC’s Benny Feilhaber also received a yellow card.

This is LAFC’s manager Bob Bradley’s first MLS win since 2006 when he was the Chivas USA manager.

LAFC became the second Bradley team to win as an expansion team in MLS history on the road. The 1998 Chicago Fire was the first team to accomplish this feat.
