The young Los Angeles FC Mexican American Christian Torres dressed up as a hero by scoring the tying goal against the Portland Timbers late in the game, at the 93th minute. Torres converted after receiving a pass from Mahala Opoku and was able to demonstrate one of the qualities that coach Bob Bradley has discounted and impressed many, such as his ability to shoot. He is the youngest player to score a goal for LAFC

Christian Torres was born in California and began his career at the academy of his current team's rival, the Los Angeles Galaxy. There, Torres dazzled everyone and during his first season with the club, Torres won the Golden Boot for the under-15 level, scoring 17 goals. And in 2018 he switched sides and went to the LAFC academy.

On July 8, 2020, along with his academy teammates Antonio Leone and Erik Dueñas, Torres signed a homegrown professional player contract with Major League Soccer's Los Angeles FC and the three were the first three local signings to arrive directly from the club's academy.

Torres then made his competitive debut for the club on August 30, 2020 in a 3-1 loss to Seattle Sounders FC. In the 78th minute he came in as a substitute for Brian Rodríguez. After rescuing a point in the game against Portland Timbers, LAFC has 25 points in the Western Conference, which leaders are the aforementioned Portland and Seattle Sounders
