The names are the same and the uniforms are the same. But the results? Not so much. Three games into its new season, the Galaxy, Major League Soccer's reigning champion, is still looking for its first win. And the latest loss was the costliest yet, with Toronto FC riding goals by Ryan Johnson and Nick Soolsma to a 2-1 victory Wednesday at the Home Depot Center, knocking the Galaxy out of the CONCACAF Champions League. The win sends Toronto on to the tournament semifinals against Mexico's Santos Laguna.

Coach Juergen Klinsmann called up a 22-player roster composed almost entirely of Major League Soccer players for the U.S. national team's April 2 friendly with Mexico in Phoenix. But the most interesting selection is one of the three non-MLS players: Bayern Munich teenager Julian Green, a dual citizen who earlier this month decided to play internationally for the U.S. With Green's change of association having been approved by FIFA, Green is likely to see some playing time in the final U.S. match before May, when preliminary World Cup rosters are due. "Everyone knows the clock is ticking," Klinsmann said.

TORONTO -- Fishing for positives in a sea of negatives, the Galaxy came up with a modest catch Sunday night. For instance: * The team was outshot, 14-2, by Toronto FC, including 5-1 in shots on target, and yet still managed a 0-0 tie in front of a sellout crowd of 20,562 at BMO Field, Major League Soccer's newest stadium.

Since taking over as coach of the U.S. national team 2 1/2 years ago, Juergen Klinsmann has repeatedly preached the superiority of European soccer. "When you watch Premier League, you watch the German Bundesliga or you watch Spanish football - Barcelona, Madrid - then you know the benchmark," he said. But with this summer's World Cup less than 100 days away, Klinsmann has softened his tone a bit. Not that he's had much of a choice. Because after the cream of Klinsmann's crop of European-based players was embarrassed during the U.S.'s 2-0 loss to Ukraine on Wednesday, it became apparent the team he will take to Brazil this summer will be dominated by players from Major League Soccer.

No Major League Soccer team has ever won the recently revamped CONCACAF Champions League. And Galaxy Coach Bruce Arena thinks he knows why. "We probably don't schedule it as a priority," he says. "So there's things as a league that we have to make better for us to have the elite clubs in North America and Central America. We have to grow as a league on the field and off the field in order to achieve that goal. " The Galaxy has a chance to brush aside those obstacles, not to mention Toronto FC, when the two MLS clubs meet in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Home Depot Center in Carson (the game will be televised on Telefutura and Fox Soccer)

They held a track meet at the Home Depot Center on Saturday night but called it a soccer game. Chivas USA and Toronto FC ran flat-out for 90 minutes -- even though there was nary a gold medal in sight -- and at the end the home team edged the visitors at the wire. Barely. In the fourth and final minute of stoppage time, one of the players who had run the least -- Toronto goalkeeper Greg Sutton -- accidentally allowed the game to slip literally through his fingers as Chivas won, 2-1, on a rare goal by Atiba Harris.

Toronto FC and the Galaxy played to a scoreless draw Saturday night amid nearby G20 Summit protests that prevented several thousand fans from attending the game at BMO Field. Subway shutdowns, altered bus routes and the uncertainty over road closings contributed to the smaller-than-usual crowd. The attendance was announced at 18,809, though it didn't reflect the actual number of fans in the stands. The Galaxy (10-1-3) is playing without stars Landon Donovan and Edson Buddle, members of the U.S. team eliminated from the World Cup earlier Saturday.

Update -- Landon Donovan has rejoined the team after sitting out the U.S. national team's 2-0 loss to England in London on Wednesday. His groin strain makes him questionable today, especially on the artificial surface at BMO Field. Toronto FC defeated the Galaxy, 3-2, in Carson on April 13.

Chivas USA signed another player of Mexican descent Monday. But don't expect this one to resurface playing for the Mexican national team or in the Mexican league with Chivas of Guadalajara. That's because Carlos Bocanegra earned the nickname "Captain America" by captaining the U.S. in the 2010 World Cup. And his return to Major League Soccer could fuel a return to form that may propel him back onto a national team hasn't played for since November. "I've very excited to join the club," said Bocanegra, who will be eligible to play for Chivas USA when the summer transfer window opens July 9, pending receipt of his international transfer certificate.

Jose Villarreal, one of the Galaxy's bright young soccer stars, has joined an illustrious group with his bicycle-kick goal Saturday in stoppage time. Did you see the play that made all the highlight shows? Including No. 1 on a certain sports juggernaut? Move over Landon Donovan, Robbie Keane and the recently departed David Beckham. Villarreal, the 19-year-old from Inglewood, came in as a substitute against Toronto FC and netted the equalizer in the 92nd minute of a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

The player of the week award was the first for Kennedy and the first by a Chivas USA player since Justin Braun won in May 2011.
