Kylian Mbappe was on hand as Gareth Bale’s new club, Los Angeles FC, moved further away from the US top division.
MLS leaders LAFC signed Welsh wizard Bale on a one-year deal on a free transfer in a shock move for the former Real Madrid star.
And the Paris Saint-Germain attacker showed he won’t be the only big name in California by attending their Sunday night game.
The MLS Twitter account posted: ”sup @KMbappe. Shooting of #LAFC x #RBNY at the Banc.’

Bale, 32, spent nine seasons with the Spanish giants after joining for a then world record £85million, but his time there wasted amid fans’ frustration at his frequent injuries.
His contract with Los Blancos finally expired this summer and he left on a free transfer.
With the 106-cap international keen to get regular playing time ahead of Wales’ World Cup crusade in November, several clubs vie for his services, including Championship side Cardiff.
But the former Tottenham and Southampton star went for Steve Cherundolo’s west coast LAFC on a 12-month contract.
And Mbappe, who signed a huge new contract with PSG this summer to reportedly make him the highest paid player in the world, watched at the Banc as LAFC won 2-0 after scoring two goals in four minutes from Cristian Arango and Diego Palacios.
The result leaves them four points clear of second-seeded Real Salt Lake in the Western Conference table, with a game in hand.
