Double-winning World Cup send-off Saturday MLS gameday

I think that headline manages to sum today up.

Not a classic FA Cup final, but double-winners Chelsea won’t care.

Despite the 1-0 scoreline, the result was never really in doubt.

Chelsea hit the woodwork five times, each team missed a penalty – the miss by Portsmouth striker Kevin-Prince Boateng that would have leveled the score telegraphed the inevitable outcome – and yet another Didier Drogba goal was enough for Chelsea to take its first-ever league and cup double.

Game story.

With the English season officially over, MLS briefly takes center stage before the World Cup begins.

Galaxy fans will want to revel in this.

Phil Collin has the basics on the Galaxy-Toronto and Columbus Crew-Chivas USA games here.

And Mr. Collin has more on what the loss of Edson Buddle and Landon Donovan means to the Galaxy here.

That’s pretty much the subject of the official Galaxy preview, too:

The Toronto perspective is here.

Lastly, Rolling Hills Estates’ Robbie Rogers, the Crew winger on the cusp of making the World Cup team (or not), is the focus (along with fellow winger Eddie Gaven) of the Columbus Dispatch story previewing Chivas USA’s road game. Both scored last week for the Crew.
