The decision to start Gareth Bale backfired for LAFC

LA Football Club suffered a second consecutive defeat on Friday night

when it lost 4-1 to Austin FC at Q2 Stadium.

LAFC now has a record of 18 wins, three draws and six losses for 57 points,

with seven games left in the regular season.

Gareth made his debut in Major League Soccer and things didn't go

as planned for the Welshman as the eager golfer had a disappointing night.

The 33-year-old played alongside Carlos Vela in the attacking trio,

but failed to make an impact before being knocked out

in the 60th minute. She missed a shot on target.
