Playing in the Concacaf's Champions League, Galaxy suffered after some home-town decisions by the officiating crew (officials) helped Morelia to victory.

Keane had given the Galaxy the lead with a fantastic play (good move) and almost scored after shooting the ball from beyond the midfield (half-way line). But, after the Mexicans had equalised, Keane had a go-ahead goal (to take the lead) ruled out incorrectly for offside. The linesman missed the call (failed to see the decision) and minutes later at the other end Morelia snatched a winner. At least football is a universal language.
