Los Angeles FC played their first MLS game at the Banc Of California Stadium last night and, fittingly, they beat the Seattle Sounders 1-0 with a stoppage-time goal from centre-half Laurent Ciman.

LAFC are in the first year of existence as an MLS side, and actually won their first competitive game against Seattle – also 1-0 – on March 4. 

Their stadium has a 22,000 capacity and, although it's the first football-specific facility built in California for nearly 60 years, will also be a venue for the 2028 Olympics.
