Major League Soccer (MLS) outfit Los Angeles FC (LAFC) began their third season in the top flight just like the previous two seasons. Early league wins and two goals in the first two games for star player Carlos Vela. Mexican international forward Carlos Vela had won the Most Valuable Player (MVP) Award at the end of the club's second season in the MLS and was able to continue that form into the third season. Carlos Vela and Los Angeles FC were then involved in a miracle of some sort at the start of their debut season in the CONCACAF Champions League. Los Angeles FC trailed 2-0 against Club Leon of Mexico in the first leg and they were able to turn it around in the second leg at home to progress into the next stage of the competition.

The second leg miracle preceded the suspension of league football at the start of the 2020 season due to Covid-19. The halt in football came at a wrong time for both Carlos Vela and his team, Los Angeles FC. The duo were at the peak of their powers when the dreaded Coronavirus led to the suspension of football. By the time football resumed in the middle of the year, injuries had decimated Los Angeles FC and Carlos Vela was one of the players affected.

The club was able to overcome those challenges to become the first MLS team to beat three clubs from Mexico enroute to the CAF Champions League finals. In the last three Regular Seasons in the MLS, no team scored more goals, won more games and earned more points than LAFC. The club is looking up to good times as they prepare for the 2021 season. Carlos Vela was part of the LAFC players that resumed training earlier this month from the squad of last season in time for the new campaign.
