Morning Kickaround

*Click here to read my story about D.C. United's goalkeeping situation.

*Weather outlook for Estadio RFK tonight: gloomy.

*Attendance outlook: Maybe 15,000.

*D.C. United's academy team wrapped up group play in a major youth tournament in Spain with an 8-0 loss to Partizan Belgrade. Yes, that score is correct.

*Besides the United-Dynamo match (Comcast SportsNet, 7:30), Kansas City will host Colorado at Shawnee Mission North High School in a U.S. Open Cup qualifier. The winner advances to next month's round of 16.

*USA-Spain today in Santander. Kickoff is at 4 p.m. ET, but the TV coverage is tape delay beginning at 5:30 on ESPN2 and 7 p.m. on Galavision. Spain has not lost since the fall of 2006; the USA is coming off a dreary performance at England. You make the call.

*A Swede who has coached in Portugal, Italy and England takes over the national team program in Mexico? Best of luck, Sven-Goran. "You [Mexicans] have 120 million people and it's motivating. I like big challenges so it is up to me to convince the supporters and the players that I am the right man," he said.

*Liga de Quito advanced to the Copa Libertadores final for the first time with a 0-0 home tie against Club America, winning the series on away goals following a 1-1 tie in Mexico City in the first leg. Their opponent will be decided today when Boca Juniors visits Maracana to face Fluminense with the series even on aggregate 2-2.

*The new FIFA rankings are out. Argentina, the USA's opponent Sunday at Giants Stadium, remains No. 1. Ticket sales are approaching 60,000.

France 1, Colombia 0 (friendly):
