A sandwich named for Los Angeles Football Club coach Bob Bradley will be created Sunday at Ike’s Sandwiches in Westwood.

LAFC defender Tristan Blackmon and goalkeeper Tyler Miller will assist in the creation of the sandwich which consists of a base of turkey, avocado and hot pepper sauce and other toppings.

The team’s merchandise truck will also be at the shop from 2-6 p.m.

The sandwich is the first of three LAFC-related food items to be unveiled this week leading up to next Sunday’s season opener against Sporting Kansas City at Banc of California Stadium.

Forward Latif Blessing will help build the “LAFC Burger” at The Golden State restaurant in Little Tokyo on Thursday. Other LAFC players will appear at Pink’s Hot Dogs in Hollywood on Friday to help serve the “LAFC Dog.”

Bradley is among the greatest U.S. men’s soccer coaches. He was chosen as Major League Soccer’s coach of the year in 1998 and 2006; coached the Chicago Fire to the MLS Cup in 1998 in its first season; the U.S. men’s national team to a berth in the round of 16 in the 2010 FIFA World Cup and 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup title; and was the first American coach in the English Premier League.
