USMNT players return to MLS action, Chivas USA's Torres scores...again, and more.

FC Dallas is undefeated in there last three MLS matches. Let's take a look at what else is happening around MLS.

USMNT returns

MLS is back in full-swing after the World Cup break and the USA stars returned to action.

Houston's Brad Davis made an immediate impact, playing the full 90 minutes and scoring a goal in Houston's 2-2 tie with the New York Red Bulls.

Kyle Beckerman and Nick Rimando both played the full 90 minutes, helping RSL break their five game winless streak in a 2-1 home victory over New England.

Omar Gonzalez didn't play for Los Angeles Galaxy in their 2-2 tie with Portland.

Michael Bradley played just 60 minutes in Toronto's 2-1 defeat to D.C. United.

Seattle's USMNT duo of Clint Dempsey and DeAndre Yedlin didn't play in the Sounder's 1-0 loss to Vancouver.

Finally, Sporting Kansas City's Matt Besler didn't play, but Graham Zusi played the last 29 minutes in SKC's 1-1 tie with Chicago.


Erick "Cubo" Torres is only 23-years-old. He now has 12 goals and one assist on the season and trails only New York's Bradley Wright-Phillips in the race for the Golden Boot.

Torres is giving Chivas USA hope of a playoff spot. In Chivas USA's last three games, they are undefeated and have not allowed a goal n each of them. They won by a score of 1-0 every game. Who scored that one goal each game? You guessed it...Erick "Cubo" Torres. But, this last goal was something right out of Hollywood. He scored in the 94th minute on the last kick of the game.

This kid is something special. I hope Chivas USA and MLS do what they can to make this loan a permanent deal.
