Cuban defector Galindo signs with Chivas USA

CARSON, Calif. -- Former Cuban national team forward Maykel Galindo, who defected to the United States in 2005, signed with Major League Soccer's Chivas USA on Monday.

Galindo, 26, defected after scoring Cuba's only goal in a 3-1 loss to Costa Rica at Seattle's Qwest Field on July 9, 2005.

Galindo was granted political asylum and signed with the Seattle Sounders of the United Soccer Leagues' First Division.

He scored the goal in the final that sent it into overtime and ultimately penalty kicks, with Seattle defeating the Richmond Kickers, 2-1, for the championship.

Galindo suffered a nose injury in an exhibition game last May against Chivas USA.

He underwent reconstructive surgery and missed 17 games.
