Goalie Notes

LAFC: Kenneth Vermeer

Vermeer replaces Tyler Miller for 2020 and the experienced keeper has made five appearances for the Netherlands national team in his career .

  • Vermeer posted a record of 8-3-6 for his club team, Feyenoord, before his transfer to LAFC.
  • The LAFC starting keeper is 34-years old, making him one of the oldest keepers in the MLS.
  • Vermeer inherits the keeper position for a team that allowed a league-low 37 goals and posted a record high of plus-48 in goal differential.

Inter Miami CF: Luis Robles

The veteran presence of Robles will mind the net for Miami in their first season. The dependable keeper played 33 of 34 games for the NY Red Bulls last year.

  • The 35-year old keeper posted a record of 13-14-6 last season with the Red Bulls and allowed 1.51 goals per game.
  • Robles has won the MLS Goalkeeper of the Year in 2015 as well as three Supporters Shields.
  • Robles was named captain of the club this week by coach Alonso.

Players to Watch

LAFC

LAFC was a juggernaut in 2019, setting a boatload of records and plowing the competition down on their way to a Supporters Shield, but they failed to bring home the Cup last season after a loss to Seattle.

  • Carlos Vela put up a historic season in 2019, scoring 34 goals and adding 15 assists for LAFC.
  • Vela’s sidekick, Diego Rossi, is one of the best young prospects in MLS and although Europe will be calling soon, the LA club hopes to maximize his performance in 2020.
  • LAFC is averaged over three goals per match at Banc of California Stadium in 2019.

Inter Miami CF

Miami’s offensive attack will be led by high-profile transfer Rodolfo Pizarro and 19-year old winger, Matias Pellegrini.

  • Pizzaro came from CF Monterrey where he won two Concacaf Champions League titles, three Liga MX crowns and led the club to the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup.
  • The club is a mix of youth and veteran leadership and their head coach, Diego Alonso, has won two Concacaf Champions League titles.
  • Another player to look for is Julian Carranza, the 19-year old Argentina-native will miss the first few weeks of the season, but could provide a spark as the club enters the summer months.
