Remember when the Galaxy visited the White House several weeks ago? They trained at a university known as Georgetown. Well, that same Galaxy team is back for another training session at the home of the Hoyas prior to taking on the hosts at RFK Stadium. Robbie Keane (Ireland), Jaime Penedo (Panama), Gyasi Zardes (U.S.), Bradford Jamieson (U.S. U-20’s) and Oscar Sorto (U.S. U-23’s) were all called up to national team duty and will not make the trip.
