Considering the number of players from CONCACAF who ply their trade in MLS, there is normally quite a bit of crossover between club and country when the U.S. plays in the region. This time...not so much. Chris Rolfe and John Thorrington share the same locker room with Marco Pappa in Chicago, the trio coming off a 2-1 loss to Columbus in the Eastern Conference finals. They are the only current teammates lining up against each other Wednesday night. Sean Franklin now sits in the space at The Home Depot Center that was once the home of Guillermo “El Pando” Ramirez, who many will recall scored the championship-winning goal in overtime for the Los Angeles Galaxy in the 2005 MLS Cup.
