El Salvador’s Rene Gonzales, left, and the rest of his team presented a bigger hurdle for the Galaxy’s Landon Donovan and his U.S. teammates than expected.

*That was close – a below par U.S. clawed back a two-goal deficit Saturday to tie El Salvador 2-2 in World Cup qualifying.

*Chivas USA seeks its second consecutive win to open the MLS season against Dallas at noon (live on TeleFutura and Prime) and will face their opponents’ backup goalkeeper.

*More than 10,000 are expected at Home Depot Center today for the inaugural Women’s Professional Soccer game between the L.A. Sol and Washington Freedom (live at 3 p.m. on Fox Soccer Channel). The Sol perspective is here; more on the Freedom is here.

* Gameday rosters here.

Sol injuries: Midfielder Aly Wagner is doubtful with a left hip strain (and won’t start – she’s Twittering) and striker Han Duan is listed as probable with a left knee sprain.

Twittering details:

Follow Wagner here.

Follow the Freedom’s Kati Jo Spisak here.

Follow WPS Commissioner Tonya Antonucci here.
