On paper, the defending champions may have had the clear edge, but it was the New England that surprised the Tucson crowd moments after the opening whistle.

Feilhaber floated up in the middle of the box and, while upside down, struck the ball perfectly to send it into the net and past bewildered Galaxy goalkeeper Josh Saunders.

"You don't get those very often," Feilhaber said after the game.

"It was a little bit of luck. It bounced up and came perfectly to me. I did as best I could to concentrate on keeping it on target."
