Starting XI: Penedo; DeLaGarza, Gonzalez, Leonardo, Dunivant; Jimenez, Juninho, Sarvas, Zardes; Donovan, Keane
So basically Carlo Cudicini is at this point being paid to practice with the other goalkeepers and retrieve water. He's basically an assistant coach. None of the players who went on international break get a rest, they're all thrown once more into the breach; dear friends.
LA Galaxy subs: Rowe, Opare, Franklin, Mastroeni, Stephens, McBean, Villarreal

Dwayne de Rosario was featured yesterday on MLS Insider, in an interview conducted by Jimmy Conrad. The two of them played together on the San Jose Earthquakes team that beat LA in the 2001 MLS Cup. Landon Donovan and de Rosario scored for San Jose in the win. It was LA's third MLS Cup loss without a victory. That would finally come next year against Taylor Twellman's New England Revolution.
DC United subs: Willis, Iapichino, Shanosky, Nyassi, Porter, Martin, Doyle
Kickoff: 1:00 pm
