FC Dallas and Chicago battled to a 1-1 draw Thursday night, but that still leaves seven matches on the Saturday schedule – all slated for well after the U.S./Turkey send-off game in Philadelphia.
The Columbus Crew welcome in the Galaxy for a battle of conference leaders – the first of several matches that Landon Donovan and Edson Buddle will miss because of international duty. Chad Marshall and Robbie Rogers, trimmed from the provisional 30-man roster, are expected to be available for the Crew.
