Chicago Fire v. Manchester United
The Chicago Fire (2-6-12) will face Manchester United today at Soldier Field. This match is part of the World Football Challenge and although we don't cover
soccer football much, we at CubsStats love the Fire and we fully expect a hard fought match regardless of Man U's hot start:
Man U already has posted two dominant wins during its U.S. tour, most recently crushing MLS side Seattle Sounders FC, 7-0, on Wednesday.Things have been tough for the Fire this season. It seems management is taking this organization in a different direction. If the Fire were competitive year-after-year, the Chicago market would embrace them more -- there have been some lean years since their last MLS Cup championship (1998) -- and I can't think of a better way to start than earning a victory over Man U.
