Afternoon Updates

*DCU-Chicago kickoff tomorrow is scheduled for 8:02 p.m. ESPN2 coverage begins at 7:30.

*A moment of silence for Gordon Bradley (former Cosmos, Dips and George Mason coach, and a former DCU TV commentator) and longtime USSF official Bill Goaziou will be held before tomorrow's match. Both passed away last week.

*Before the DCU-Chicago match, the DCU under-18 academy team will play Potomac. Kickoff is 4:45. Fans with tickets to the MLS match are welcome to watch.

*At halftime, John Harkes and Kevin Payne will be honored as inductees into the D.C.-Virginia Soccer Hall of Fame.

*As if DCU supporters had not seen and heard enough about Christian Gomez after Sunday's match, his brother, Pablo Gomez, has received his visa and will join USL2 Real Maryland this week. The younger Gomez, a product of Nueva Chicago, was on trial with DCU in February 2006.

*The new women's pro league, which will launch next spring, is planning its initial U.S. player allocation as early as next month but possibly July. One proposal being discussed is allowing the high-profile players to list their top three choices where they'd like to play, with the league then deciding where to place them.

*You might have heard rumblings of Houston expressing interest in forward Joseph Ngwenya, who scored for the Dynamo in last year's MLS Cup and left for Austria during the offseason. One of his reps tells me there is no chance he comes back this year. Meantime, Houston has apparently taken interest in Scottish goalkeeper Derek Soutar.
