A round up of some of today's headlines:
Marco Pappa has been called up for the Guatemalan National team so it is likely that he will miss most of the Fire's games in June. Seattle 6/4, at Kansas City 6/9, at Columbus 6/12, at New England 6/18, and Real Salt Lake on 6/22 are all games that could see the Fire without their leading scorer over the last two seasons. Davis Paul, Patrick Nyarko, and Bratislav Ristic are all candidates to fill in on the outside but Nyarko is recovering from concussion symptoms and a timetable for his return hasn't been determined yet.
Bob Bradley announced his US roster for the Gold Cup and seven MLS players are included. Former Fire defender Carlos Bocanegra is on the squad, as is Downer's Grove native Eric Lichaj. MLSers include Agudelo, Donovan, Wondolowski, Ream, Rimando, Rogers, and Feilhaber.
US Open Cup
The Fire take on San Jose in California tomorrow night in another USOC play in game. There is no video feed unfortunately but an audiostream will be available through an Earthquakes outlet at Chicago-Fire.com.
