CHIVAS USA TONIGHT VS. SAN JOSE When: 7:30. Where: Home Depot Center. On the air: TV: FS West, KWHY. Records: Chivas USA 7-12-7, Earthquakes 16-6-5. Record vs. San Jose: 0-1-1. Update: Chivas USA has used 10 different lineups in its last 10 games - and there could be more changes coming Saturday night if defender Danny Califf's sore right hamstring keeps him from starting against the San Jose Earthquakes. None of the previous shuffling has seemed to help much, with Chivas going 2-6-2 and getting outscored 27-11 over the last two months.

With the U.S. in the final stretch before this summer's World Cup, Coach Juergen Klinsmann has challenged his players to step up and make a statement if they want to make the team. Chris Wondolowski proved Saturday that he got the message, scoring goals in each half to lift the U.S. to a 2-0 win over South Korea before a sold-out crowd of 27,000 at StubHub Center. Whether that will be enough to earn him a seat on the plane to Brazil remains to be seen. But it sure didn't hurt his chances with Klinsmann, who admitted he came away impressed.

Better late than never. That may not sound like much of an offensive strategy, but it's worked so far for the league-leading San Jose Earthquakes, who play host to the red-hot Galaxy at 7:30 p.m. Saturday night before a sold-out crowd of more than 50,000 at Stanford Stadium (ESPN 2, ESPN Deportes). No team in Major League Soccer has scored more often than the Earthquakes this season, but it's not so much how many goals they score as when they score them that makes the team dangerous.

U.S. national team Coach Juergen Klinsmann added a trio of Major League Soccer players to the roster for World Cup qualifiers with Jamaica and Panama. Joining the team Thursday in Kansas City were midfielder Brad Davis of the Houston Dynamo as well as defender Clarence Goodson and forward Chris Wondolowski of the San Jose Earthquakes. All have seen significant action for the U.S. team this year, with Davis appearing in six matches, including three qualifiers. Goodson, the most veteran of the three, has 43 caps with the national team while Wondolowski scored five goals in helping the Americans breeze unbeaten through July's Gold Cup tournament.

Lew Wolff, who owns a large chunk of the Oakland Athletics and has been known to dabble in real estate, has a new venture going. On Wednesday, Wolff, along with business partner and fellow A's owner John Fisher, were unveiled by Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber as the owners of the league's 14th team, the San Jose Earthquakes, which will begin playing -- again -- in 2008. If the name sounds familiar, it should.

In the words of the Galaxy's star forward Landon Donovan, it's "crunch time" for Major League Soccer's reigning champion. There are nine games left in the regular season for the Galaxy, starting with Saturday night's match against the San Jose Earthquakes, a state and conference rivalry dubbed the California Clasico. And the Galaxy has no shortage of reasons to want a victory over San Jose in the game at StubHub Center. For starters, the Galaxy entered the game tied with Seattle for second place in the hotly contested MLS Western Conference, eight points behind division leader Real Salt Lake.

Galaxy Coach Bruce Arena has repeatedly said striker Robbie Keane was Major League Soccer's best player for much of the season. But apparently he's not among the most valuable. MLS released a list of finalists for its major postseason awards Thursday, and Keane's name was nowhere to found despite the fact he finished fourth in the league in scoring with 16 goals. Keane also finished first in something called the Castrol Index, a mathematical formula similar to the NFL's quarterback rating that measures everything a player does during a game.

Galaxy captain Landon Donovan was selected to a record 12th consecutive All-Star team Sunday, earning a spot on Major League Soccer's First XI as voted by the fans. He'll be joined on the squad by teammate David Beckham, a three-time All-Star selection. Members of the First XI will not necessarily be included on the game-day roster for the MLS All-Star game against Chelsea of the English Premier League on July 25. All-Star Coach Ben Olsen of D.C. United will select the playing roster based on player availability and tactical considerations.

Goalkeeper Dan Kennedy, who is having a spectacular season for Chivas USA, was named Sunday to Major League Soccer's roster for next week's midseason All-Star game against Champions League winner Chelsea at PPL Park outside Philadelphia. Kennedy's goals-against average of 1.06 is the second lowest in the league for a regular keeper. He also has five shutouts and hasn't given up a goal in his last 228 minutes of MLS play. Kennedy will be joined on the team by Galaxy midfielders David Beckham and Landon Donovan, who are both coming off big efforts in the team's win Saturday at Portland.

This time there would be no last-minute collapse by the Galaxy at the hands of the San Jose Earthquakes. Robbie Keane's two goals and Landon Donovan's 100th career regular-season goal as a Galaxy player led L.A. to a 3-0 win over San Jose at StubHub Center on Saturday night. The victory not only bolstered the Galaxy's playoff hopes in Major League Soccer's Western Conference, but it also gave the Galaxy some redemption from its play June 29, when the Earthquakes scored twice in second-half stoppage time to win, 3-2. This time, “Our entire group played well defensively,” said Galaxy Coach Bruce Arena.

Robbie Rogers stepped away from soccer Friday because the physical and emotional toll of performing on the field while living in the closet had become too much to bear. Landon Donovan stepped away from soccer 21/2 months ago because, he said, the physical and emotional toll of performing at a world-class level every week over the last 12 years had become too much to bear. Rogers may never return. Donovan, the Galaxy says, will be back - exactly when, the team will announce in the next few days.

Galaxy defenders Omar Gonzalez and A.J. De La Garza were among 25 players called into this week's training camp for the U.S. soccer team, but Galaxy captain Landon Donovan was not on the list, making it unlikely the national team's all-time leading scorer will play in the opening match of the final round of World Cup qualifying next month in Honduras. Also invited to camp at the Home Depot Center in Carson was Chivas USA striker Juan Agudelo and former Galaxy forward Edson Buddle, who was traded to the Colorado Rapids last month.

Houston Dynamo General Manager Chris Canetti, like much of the rest of the country, was horrified by the Dec. 14 massacre at Shady Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., that left 20 children and six adults dead. Unlike much of the rest of the country, he decided to do something about it. So Canetti, a Connecticut native, got in touch with Eric Da Costa, the Quinnipiac University soccer head coach, and the two of them reached out to youth soccer people they knew in the area, including the Connecticut Football Club youth program.

Galaxy forward Robbie Keane and team captain Landon Donovan were named Monday to Major League Soccer's First XI, the league's postseason all-star team. Keane, playing his first full season in MLS, finished fourth in the league in scoring with 16 goals before making five more in the playoffs. Keane also fueled the Galaxy's second-half run to a postseason berth by recording a goal or an assist in 15 of the team's final 19 games. Donovan, who made the team as a midfielder, was second in the league with 14 assists in just 26 games.

The challenge facing the Galaxy on Wednesday in Santa Clara is simple: Win or go home. After that, things get a little complicated. That's because Major League Soccer's conference semifinals are actually a two-leg playoff in which the winner is determined by total goals. And because the San Jose Earthquakes won the opening match, 1-0, on a free-kick goal in stoppage time at Carson, the Galaxy must win the rematch by a goal just to pull even and force an immediate overtime. And if the teams are still even at the end of a 30-minute overtime Wednesday?
