Sebastian Lletget is an American soccer player who was born Sebastian Francisco Lletget and plays as a midfielder for the LA Galaxy in Major League Soccer. Sebastian has also played for the U-17, U-23, and U-23 teams of the USMNT (United States Men’s National Team). When Sporting Santa Clara, one of the oldest US youth soccer clubs in Silicon Valley, picked him for their team, it was the start of his professional football career. When he was playing for Sporting Santa Clara, scouts from the International Academy of West Ham United FC, a soccer club based in East London, England, saw and liked his raw skills. After that, he signed with West Ham United and moved to England. He stayed with the soccer club for five years, but he didn’t play much because the team only had 11 players. Lletget went back to the US and was picked up by Los Angeles Galaxy, a professional soccer team based in Carson, California. Sebastian has also played for the U-17, U-20, and U-23 national teams. In 2017, he played his first match for the US Men’s National Team against Serbia.
Early years as a professional
Sebastian Lletget’s first big break as a professional soccer player came when the Sporting Santa Clara youth soccer club picked him to play for its team in the US under-17 residency program.

Work in a Club Footballer
Lletget moved to England in 2009, and in September of the following year, he got his first professional contract with West Ham United FC. But he didn’t play a single EPL game in 2010-2011, 2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2013-2014, or 2014-2015. (English Premier League).
During the time he was under contract with West Ham, he mostly played in warm-up games and pre-season friendlies. During the 2012-13 EPL season, he was picked as a sub for four games but never played. His having mononucleosis made it even less likely that he would show up.
Sebastian’s contract with West Ham was set to end at the end of the 2012-13 Premier League season, but at the end of that season, he signed a new two-year deal. But the only time he played was in an FA Cup game on January 5, 2014, against Nottingham Forest, which West Ham lost badly (0-5).

Lletget played for LA Galaxy II on May 30, 2015, when they played Colorado Springs. Two goals to one, LA Galaxy won the tie. He played for the first team for the first time on June 13 against Columbus Crew. He scored the first goal of the game, which was also his first goal for the LA Galaxy.
On June 17, 2015, he scored a goal for his team in a Lamar Hunt US Open Cup game against PSA Elite. This goal helped his team win. Three days later, he scored in his fourth straight game against Philadelphia Union. On June 24, he also scored against Portland Timbers.
In the fourth round of the US Open Cup, when the game went into extra-time against La Máquina FC, Sebastian scored two goals. He did the same thing against Seattle Sounders in the quarterfinals of the US Open, which helped the LA Galaxy get to the semifinals.
He was LA Galaxy’s second-highest goal scorer in 2015, with a total of seven goals and two assists. In 2015, he played in 20 games and kicked off 17 of them. He was on the “MLS Team of the Week” twice.
During the 2016 MLS season, he was one of seven footballers who played for the LA Galaxy for more than 2,000 minutes. But he only scored one goal all season. He did help set up eight goals, though, and was once eligible for the MLS Team of the Week.
