In the midst of the build up to the 2010 World Cup, it’s worth pointing out that there are four MLS games tonight – and eight more slated for Saturday.
Included in this Wednesday four-pack is a clash between the Kansas City Wizards and D.C. United on ESPN 2 tonight at 7.
This quote from the Washington Post just about sums it up for United.
“We discussed some things to try to get the team focused on results, no matter how ugly they are,” United president Kevin Payne said. “Since I have checked the standings recently, we haven’t gotten any points for style. We’re not worried about that right now. If we get the ship righted and if we add a few players in the summer, maybe then we will try to go back to playing the kind of soccer we want to play.”
Kansas City is also trying to get back on track – and find the back of the net.
“We’re all trying to press and push and get the goal,” Wizards’ forward Josh Wolff told mls.com. “But sometimes you need to make another pass and sometimes you need to slow it down. It’s not just one thing.”
Here’s the complete schedule:

L.A. Galaxy at Seattle Sounders, TeleFutura, 4 p.m.
