Flip the channel to ESPN2 and watch with us

Once upon a time the Chicago Fire were kings. They burst on the MLS scene in the late ‘90s and created a strong history. Over the past few years that history is merely memory. The Seattle Sounders overshadow what Chicago was.

While Fire fans may be thinking about that history, they are also quite focused on a team that looks to be capable of making the playoffs. They have a player that is recognized internationally — Bastian Schweinsteiger. Their time may just be now. That’s why ESPN2 picked up this 6 p.m. PT match.

That and the Seattle Sounders are the MLS Cup champions. Our star draws eyeballs.

Nima Saghafi is the center referee.

Injuries and Suspensions

Jordy Delem is serving a suspension after being given a retroactive second yellow card. No players are in danger of accumulation. John Goossens will be out for Chicago. They list Juninho as questionable. The Sounders list of players out is Roman Torres, Henry Wingo and Nouhou. Oniel Fisher, Aaron Kovar and Chad Marshall are all questionable. Yes, this means Brad Evans is not on the injury report.
