Here are Colin’s keys for Sunday's match at LA Galaxy

Motivation from Canada, new signings

It's been a positive couple of weeks for Canadian soccer, and there's been some big news for the 'Caps.

Canada's men's national team had a good run at the Gold Cup, the women's national team took Gold at the Olympics, and new additions were made to the 'Caps with Ryan Gauld, Pedro Vite, and Florian Jungwirth.

There is a feel good factor right now. Can they capitalize off of this momentum and use it as motivation.

Stay organized with the ball

The Galaxy have quality on the counter.

Even without Chicharito, players like Samuel Grandsir, Kevin Cabral, and Efrain Alvarez can do damage with space in front of them.

It's imperative that the 'Caps stay organized with the ball and watch that transition.

Continue to attack

This is the third meeting between these teams this season.

The success that the 'Caps have had against the Galaxy this year has come from being aggressive going forward, as well as being organized.

They will be without Cristian Dajome in this match, but whoever comes in needs to make sure to stay aggressive.

The 'Caps need to continue to be positive in attack and on set plays.
