French coach Raymond Domenech on today's Euro 08 qualifier between his team and Italy in Paris: "I really hope the French public will respect the Italians and not whistle them during their national anthem," he said.

-Chicago preview from the Daily Southtown says goalkeeper Zach Thornton (right quad), & forwards Chad Barrett (broken foot) and Andy Herron (international commitment) are out.
Los Angeles Galaxy v Houston Dynamo
-Houston's Chronicle preview says Brad Davis is out with a bad ankle, but Brian Ching is recovered enough from knee surgery to be on the bench for substitution.
-Andrea Canales with a Los Angeles preview from the LA Soccer News.
-Chicago will host the final if they win, but the LA-Houston winner will host if DC wins.
