Oscar Sorto (born August 13, 1994) is an American soccer player who currently plays for LA Galaxy in Major League Soccer.



On April 16, 2012, Sorto signed a letter of intent to play college soccer at California State University, Bakersfield.[1] However on December 11, he elected to pursue a professional contract and he signed with Los Angeles Galaxy as a homegrown player.[2] On September 25, 2013, Sorto made his professional debut in a 3–0 victory over Costa Rican side Cartaginés in the CONCACAF Champions League.[3]


On May 20, 2013, Sorto was named to the 22-man squad for the 2013 Toulon Tournament[4] where he would make one appearance for the U.S. under-20 national team on June 5 in a 1–0 loss to South Korea.[5] Two days later, Sorto was named to the 21-man squad for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey where he made two appearances, one against France and one against Ghana.[6]

He is also eligible to represent El Salvador due to having Salvadoran-born parents.
