Morning Kickaround

*The Euro quarterfinals get underway today with Portugal facing Germany in Basel (2:45 ET, ESPN).

*New England's unbeaten streak reaches seven with a 1-1 tie against visiting New York. Credit to the Revs' Shalrie Joseph, who played for Grenada over the weekend, returned to Foxborough to play all 90 in this match and will now rejoin his countrymen for the return leg against Costa Rica this weekend. Video highlights are available by clicking here.

*RSL and lowly San Jose play to a 0-0 tie at Rice-Eccles, the seventh time in 12 matches the Quakes have been shut out. RSL is 3-0-4 on its rock-solid home turf. San Jose's Jason Hernandez was red-carded late in the first half, which means he will miss Sunday's game at DCU. Oddly, Kyle Beckerman appeared to give RSL the lead with a touch from the edge of the goal line. It took a full minute for the players, the TV announcers and the TV graphics folks to realize it had been annulled by an offside call. Watch it all here.

*Tonight's MLS match: Chicago at Chivas USA, 10:30 (ESPN2).

*Jamaica rolls into the CONCACAF semifinal round, joining Honduras, with a 6-0 victory over Bahamas (13-0 on aggregate). That next-round group is going to be the toughest of the three, by far: Honduras, Jamaica and almost assuredly Mexico and Canada.

*Brazil has not scored in three consecutive matches after a 0-0 tie with Argentina in Belo Horizonte. Goodbye, Dunga?

*Last-place Bolivia stuns first-place Paraguay, 4-2. Goalkeeping? Not good:
