Morning Kickaround

*Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is none too pleased about Liverpool Manager Rafael Benitez's accusations.

"Perhaps he is looking for something to destabilize us before the match. If he wants me to stay on my feet, maybe he should tell his defenders to stop hitting me."

Today's the day: The second leg of the Champions League semifinal between the English rivals at Stamford Bridge (2:30 p.m. ESPN2), with the winner facing Manchester United in the May 21 final in Moscow.

Maybe this is what Benitez was talking about:

*CONCACAF will decide its club champion tonight (9:30 p.m. Fox Soccer Channel) when Saprissa visits Pachuca following a 1-1 tie in the first leg in Costa Rica.

*On a sobering note, click here for the Gordon Bradley obituary. If you would like to make a contribution in his name, please click here and be sure to specify the Gordon Bradley Scholarship Endowment.

*Newly signed Francis Doe has received his work visa and is eligible to play for D.C. United this weekend at Colorado. ... That mystery Frenchman who is in talks with United about overseeing, among other things, the club's youth development? Still no name, but I hear he has connections with French club AS Nancy.
