    Cheese and rice the fire not off to a good start. Would Sean Johnson have gotten to any of those?


  • MLSsnob

    I guess Chicago doesn’t realize they’re down two goals and are content with passing laterally and back and forth.


  • wfrw07

    Pretty crazy ending to the Ghana-Chile U-20 QF. Ghana with the seeing eye header goal at the death to win.


  • Alex C

    Ghana U-20 just beat Chile in extra time to make it to the semifinals. Exiting game. We should be feeling a little better about ( or at least have more understanding of) our U-20 exit at the group stage. France U-20 is in the semifinals as well.


  • SanFran415

    This Sherjill guy is getting DP money? That kind of decision making explains a lot about the Fire this year.


  • Jon

    Higuain’s awful penalty saves Portland from even more trouble.
    Still, down a goal and a man. Awful start.


  • tom

    Oduro sells a yellow card on Kah. Kah deserves the 2nd yellow for kicking HiguaĆ­n in the head in the box for a spot kick, which he misses.


    • Brian

      That was a straight red and completely deserved. I’m sure Higuain would have sold a 2nd yellow without the boot to the head.


  • Brian

    MLS to feature FC Dallas and Columbus at All Star Halftime in first ever dive-off. Dives will be judged on creativity and believability.


  • tom

    No argument about the red. I didn’t see him show the card. Missing the kick let the timbers off the hook, though.


    • The Big O

      Should’ve been his first yellow though. The first call was absolutely terrible. This official is trying to oust Salazar as the worst official on the continent.


  • Brian

    Sweet, I was hoping Martinique would make some noise in that group. Looks like Canada will finish with three losses.


  • Fredo

    I hope it rains Galaxy goals tonight on Dallas… to wash this slime off of me.


  • Elcapitano

    Panama just straight handling their business vs Mexico right now. Should be 4-1 if they could finish their chances. They look so much more athletic and confident.
