Weekend rewind: Chivas USA, Galaxy, World Cup

*Chivas USA wilted in the Texas heat today and lost to FC Dallas for their first loss in their last five games. Dallas play the Galaxy next weekend in Carson.

Quotable:

“It was possibly the hottest game I have been a part of in MLS, so it was difficult for both teams,” Chivas USA Coach Robin Fraser said. “That type of game out there tonight, the team that capitalizes on their opportunities is going to be the team that wins the game. Dallas capitalized on a chance really early and it was tough to chase the game after that. We fought hard and in the end we came up a bit short.”

Chivas USA lineup: Dan Kennedy, Zarek Valentin, Michael Umana, Heath Pearce, Ante Jazic, Michael Lahoud (Alejandro Moreno 59), Simon Elliott (Paulo Nagamura 64), Blair Gavin, Jorge Flores (Ben Zemanski 81), Justin Braun, Nick LaBrocca

Next for Chivas USA: the Revolution in New England Saturday

*What’s the difference between the first-place team in MLS and the last place team? Four goals.

Watch the Galaxy turn it on and win in style – as requested:

Here’s Donovan’s reaction:

Next for the Galaxy: in Portland Wednesday against the Timbers.

*Just in time for a new USMNT coach and to underline how little time there is before the next World Cup, the preliminary draw for the 2014 tournament was held this weekend.
