The Minnesota Thunder professional soccer team and former local standout Dale Weiler will host the Los Angeles Galaxy for the Copa Minnesota match on Nov. 11. When the Galaxy visits for the game set for the Metrodome, they will bring with them international soccer superstar David Beckham, as well as Landon Donovan and Cobi Jones. The Thunder roster includes many current Minnesota players and guest players from the United Soccer League.

Weiler, a high-scoring former Raider soccer player, also has been selected for the Thunder roster. He joined the metro team in the middle of last season after graduating from UW-Milwaukee, and playing on the team there.

During his first season with the Thunder, Weiler had two assists and in one case was named to the USL team of the week.
