Matchday

Today is another busy day in the world of Chicago soccer fans as the Fire take on the Crew (7 p.m. ESPN 2) and the U.S. National Team finishes Gold Cup group play when they take on Haiti (6 p.m. FSC/TeleFutura).

I previewed the Fire-Crew match yesterday (just scroll down for it) and the U.S. match tonight should see Bob Bradley give some new faces some playing time as the 'Nats are practically through to the next round already.  I see the U.S. defeating a pretty weak Haiti squad tonight by a score of 2-0. 

And in other Gold Cup news, Gonzalo Segares and his Costa Rican teammates tied with Canada, which was enough to put them in second place in Group A and give them a spot in the quarterfinals.  Gonzalo played the full 90 last night and picked up a yellow card.
