VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC vs CHICAGO FIRE BC PLACE, Vancouver, B.C. July 14, 2013 (WEEK 20, MLS Game #184) 4 p.m. PT (SNet Pac; My50 Chi) Vancouver Whitecaps FC put their current undefeated streak on the line when they play host to the Chicago Fire in the only meeting between the clubs this season, Sunday afternoon at BC Place. Whitecaps FC stretched their undefeated run to five games in their last match, a famous 2-0 victory against Seattle Sounders FC. The Fire are coming off their first loss in seven matches, dropping a 2-1 home decision to Sporting Kansas City last weekend. REFEREE: Allen Chapman.

The Fire won 1-0 last July 14 at Toyota Park in their only meeting, their first triumph against Whitecaps FC.  This is the first meeting at BC Place; the only other match in Vancouver, Aug. 7, 2011, was played at Empire Field.  Coaches record: Martin Rennie vs. CHI: P1 W0 L1 T0 … Frank Klopas vs. VAN: P3 W1 L1 T1 VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC Vancouver Whitecaps FC extended their undefeated run to five games, defeating Seattle Sounders FC 2-0 on Saturday evening at BC Place. Whitecaps FC sit in fifth place in the Western Conference with 29 points from 18 matches. LAST MATCH  Whitecaps FC took the lead after just four minutes. Kenny Miller received a long ball over the top from Corey Hertzog before cutting back on his right foot just inside the box and placing the ball in the bottom-right corner of Michael Gspurning’s goal.  The insurance tally for Vancouver came 11 minutes from full time. Substitute Darren Mattocks latched onto a Gershon Koffie flicked header to break through on goal and finish with a left-footed effort.  Whitecaps FC head coach Martin Rennie made two changes to the team that reached a 1-1 draw with Sporting Kansas City at Sporting Park. Lee Young-Pyo and Gershon Koffie came back into the team for Daigo Kobayashi and Matt Watson.  VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC (4-1-2-3): Brad Knighton - Lee Young-Pyo, Johnny Leveron, Brad Rusin, Jordan Harvey - Jun Marques Davidson - Nigel Reo-Coker, Gershon Koffie - Corey Hertzog (Daigo Kobayashi 64), Kenny Miller (Matt Watson 90), Camilo Sanvezzo (Darren Mattocks 76). TEAM NEWS  The first-ever Whitecaps FC victory against Seattle since the clubs have come into MLS was the club’s fourth in the last five games and extended their undefeated run to five games.  “I’m really pleased for them to get that result. It’s been disappointing for us not have beaten Seattle until now, but we’ve been playing really well recently, been getting good results scoring goals and tonight we defended well,” said Whitecaps FC head coach Martin Rennie.  The win also kept Whitecaps FC undefeated at home this season, now 6-0-3 at BC Place in league play, along with FC Dallas the only two unbeaten teams on their home grounds.

“We’re playing with much more confidence and we’re going forward more and creating more chances, being more dangerous. When you’re a threat to score goals that helps you defend as well – I think that’s six wins in our last nine games, two ties in those games, including tonight,” said Rennie. “Our next games are at home, so we’re playing with confidence, we’re in good form and we really need to keep working at it and keep getting better.” Darren Mattocks scored his third league goal of the season, his first since May 11 when he netted against the LA Galaxy. “It’s been a hard few months for him and obviously he’s found himself out of the team and after the season he’s had last year he expected it to be different for him,” said Kenny Miller. “We’ve seen flashes throughout the season of what Darren can bring and the electric pace that he’s got allowed him to have multiple chances tonight. Hopefully that will kick him on and we can see the best of him this year.” Miller scored his sixth goal of the season, his fourth in seven games since returning to lineup from a hamstring injury. “He’s a top player, he’s played at the highest level and he’s scored a lot of goals in his career. He’s highly regarded by many people who are coaching and playing at the highest level,” said Rennie. “His ability to move in the box is something that he brings to our team, and I think in the last couple of games we’ve seen how big a difference he can make.” After going 14 games without a shutout as a team, Brad Knighton kept his second clean sheet in the last three matches, his only two in his eight starts this season. “If Brad’s playing [well], he’s going to be in goal and that was one of the best performances I’ve seen from him,” said Rennie. “… These last few games he’s really grown as a goalkeeper and become much more aggressive, he’s come off his line much more quickly, shutting down the angles far faster. And again he was a very important player. He knows there’s competition for that place, so it brings the best out in everybody.” Said Knighton: “That’s the best game I’ve ever played, by far, hands down. I’m motivated every game, I don’t want to be dropped from a team,” Knighton said. “It’s my job to put in performances like that to make him (Rennie) think twice about taking me out of the lineup. It’s been nice to have him (David Ousted) here because it’s going to push me and make me better and that’s what you want in any position.”

CHICAGO FIRE The Chicago Fire had their undefeated streak put to an end after six games, falling 2-1 to Sporting Kansas City on Sunday afternoon at Toyota Park. The Fire are in eighth place in the Eastern Conference with 21 points from 17 matches. LAST MATCH  Sporting were up by two goals on the road before the game was 10 minutes old. A long throw-in from the left flank bounced around the heart of the area and Benny Feilhaber volleyed a blast from the edge of the box that hit the left-hand post and flew behind goalkeeper Paolo Tornaghi.  Two minutes later, Graham Zusi doubled the advantage when he collected a pass from Seth Sinovic well outside the left corner of the penalty area and curled a shot -- or perhaps an over-hit cross -- into the upper corner of the goal.  The Fire pulled a goal back in the 38th minute, when Jeff Larentowicz won a header near the center circle which bounced all the way through to Mike Magee. He was alone through on goal and calmly placed a shot past Kansas City goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen.  The Fire finished the game a man down after midfielder Daniel Paladini was shown a straight red card for a tackle from behind on SKC's Dom Dwyer in the midfield.  Fire head coach Frank Klopas made no changes to the team that took a 3-2 win against the San Jose Earthquakes at Toyota Park.  CHICAGO FIRE (4-4-2): Paolo Tornaghi - Jalil Anibaba, Bakary Soumare, Austin Berry, Gonzalo Segares Patrick Nyarko (Joel Lindpere 72), Jeff Larentowicz, Alex (Daniel Paladini 46; ejected 89), Dilly Duka - Chris Rolfe (Sherjill MacDonald 61), Mike Magee. TEAM NEWS  The Fire lost at Toyota Park for the first time in five matches, since a 1-0 defeat by Philadelphia on May 11.  “It was all in the start,” Fire head coach Frank Klopas said. “We needed to have a good start in the game. It's difficult when you fall behind that early, 2-0, because on a hot day like this you have to put a lot of energy in to come back. We got the one goal which was important.”  The Fire have conceded five goals in the opening 15 minutes of games this season, tied for second-most in MLS, one behind New York’s six.  “We need to have the mentality of being the first to challenge for the ball and not let it bounce, and sticking with your marks – that’s just not for the first ball, but the second ball, too, and clearing it out,” defender Austin Berry said. “The older guys and leaders need to make sure everyone is ready to go, and I think we were. We just weren’t tight enough, just not sharp enough for the first 10 minutes.”

The Fire have also allowed the opening goal in a game 14 times this season, most in MLS, going 4-8-2 when conceding first. D.C. United (0-12-1) is next. When they score first, the Fire are 2-0-0, the only team with a perfect record when scoring the opening goal. “It’s always difficult coming back. We talk about it, but now we have to make sure that we do have better starts to games where we don’t fall behind,” said Klopas. “That’s something we have to keep working on and talking about. Also [we need to start] going out there with the mentality to start the game from the beginning.” Mike Magee for a fifth time in six league games since coming to the Fire, his ninth goal in all competitions with Chicago. He moved into a tie with Montréal’s Marco Di Vaio atop the MLS Golden Boot standings. “We started the game like [crap] and we somehow managed to finish it off even worse,” Magee said. “I think we thought the game was tied or we were winning and we were just going to sit back and we were content. Unfortunately, we were down 2-1, so it wasn't a very good gameplan. … I can't remember a time in the second half where, during the run of play, we had three players in our attacking box. It's a joke. It's unacceptable. Basically, it seemed like we were just content to leave the game 2-1.” Paolo Tornaghi started his second consecutive match with Sean Johnson on national team duty with the USA for the CONCACAF Gold Cup, and conceded two goals for a second consecutive game. Tornaghi has allowed eight goals in his three MLS starts this season. “I felt a lot better than I did in the game before,” Tornaghi said. “The game in the beginning I was a little nervous because it had been several games since the last time I played, but now I’m rolling and it will get better game after game.” Said Klopas: “He wasn’t inexperienced last year when he stepped in and played so I don’t look at it like that. I think it’s a position where you need games and rhythm to play and things that that will happen.” On Wednesday, the Fire lost 3-2 to Mexico’s Club América in a friendly at Toyota Park. Daniel Paladini and Sherjill MacDonald scored for the Fire but a Luis Gabriel Rey goal and two América penalty kicks provided the margin of victory. Here’s the Fire team: Paolo Tornaghi; Wells Thompson (Brendan King 86’), Michael Videira, Hunter Jumper, Gonzalo Segares (Shaun Francis 46’); Dilly Duka (Victor Pineda 46’), Alex (Corben Bone 46’), Daniel Paladini, Joel Lindpere (Yazid Atouba 63’); Quincy Amarikwa, Maicon Santos (Sherjill MacDonald 63’)

ABOUT WHITECAPS FC In 1974, Vancouver Whitecaps FC played their inaugural season in the North American Soccer League, and in 1979, the club won the NASL Soccer Bowl championship. Following the demise of the NASL in 1984, Vancouver 86ers were founded in 1986, and from 1987 to 1992, the club won four Canadian Soccer League titles. In 1993, Vancouver joined the North American second division after the disbandment of the CSL. In 2001, the club reverted back to the Whitecaps and the following season added FC to their official name, while creating a full club model that encompasses professional teams for men and women, extensive youth development and grassroots participation programs, facility development, and the Whitecaps Foundation to support specific initiatives related to health and wellness through soccer. Since 2004, Whitecaps FC have won two United Soccer Leagues First Division championships and two USL WLeague championships. Whitecaps FC were the 17th club admitted to Major League Soccer on March 18, 2009, and on March 19, 2011, Vancouver kicked off their inaugural year in MLS at Empire Field before moving into the new BC Place Stadium in downtown Vancouver. Vancouver finished the 2011 season with a record of 6W-18L-10D and last season improved to 11-13-10, finished fifth in the Western Conference and made history by becoming the first Canada MLS club to qualify for the MLS Cup Playoffs. 2013 is Vancouverʼs 39th season of professional soccer, and 27th consecutive season. Whitecaps FC are the longest running professional soccer club in United States and Canadian history.

Todayʼs match will be the lone meeting between the two clubs this season. ALMOST 100! WFC are one goal away from 100 in MLS regular season play (2011: 35 – 2012: 35 – 2013: 29 and counting). Camilo tops the charts with 27 markers during two and a half seasons. Former DP Eric Hassli is second with 12 goals in one and a half seasons, and second year striker Darren Mattocks ranks third with 10 goals.

CAMILO NOMINATED FOR GOTW Camilo has been nominated for Goal of the Week for Week 19 for his incredible free kick goal against Sporting Kansas City.

WFC are only five points out of top spot in the league and have a game in hand on three on the four team above them. PLAYER SPOTLIGHT Kenny Miller – The Scot is having a fantastic sophomore season in MLS. In last Saturdayʼs important 2-0 win over Seattle Sounders FC, Miller scored his 6th goal of the season, his fourth game-winner. UNDEFEATED AT HOME Only Whitecaps FC (6W-0L-3D for 21 points) and FC Dallas (7W-0L-3D for 24 points) remain unbeaten at home in the MLS play.

The Fire have previously played once in Vancouver, a 4-2 loss at Empire Field on Aug. 7, 2011 Left back Gonzalo Segares will miss the Fire’s next game against Vancouver Whitecaps FC at BC Place on Sunday, July 14 due to yellow card accumulation. Also missing the Vancouver match will be Daniel Paladini, who will be serving the requisite one-game suspension for a red card.

A LOOK AT THE FIRE The Chicago Fire (6-8-3, 21 pts.) enter their 16th season of MLS play after posting a 17-11-6 record, earning 57 points, tied with the 2000 season for the highest point total in club history. Continuity is key for head coach Frank Klopas this season as the team returns 19 players from the 2012 squad that qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 2009, including veterans Logan Pause, Patrick Nyarko and Gonzalo Segares. Offseason acquisitions Jeff Larentowicz, Joel Lindpere, Maicon Santos and Dilly Duka bolster the roster for the Men in Red. Sean Johnson returns for his fourth campaign with the Fire. Reigning MLS Rookie of the Year Austin Berry is set to pair with German World Cup veteran Arne Friedrich in central defense. The strike tandem of Sherjill MacDonald and 2012 Fire MVP and Golden Boot winner Chris Rolfe will serve as the scoring force for the Fire in 2013.

CHICAGO FIRE SIGN DEFENDER SHAUN FRANCIS The Chicago Fire Soccer Club announced Wednesday that the club has signed Jamaican defender Shaun Francis from USL-PRO side Charlotte Eagles. The 26-year-old will be added to the Fire’s roster pending receipt of his P1 Visa. Per Major League Soccer and club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. “Shaun is a player that we’ve had our eye on for some time,” said Chicago Fire President of Soccer Operations Javier Leon. “He is a strong, powerful defender with experience in MLS and will provide additional depth along our backline.” Francis joins the Fire after starting the 2013 season with the Charlotte Eagles. Francis signed with the USL-PRO side on March 27, 2013 and has scored three goals and added two assists in 12 matches. The 6’0” defender was selected in the fourth round (63rd overall) of the 2010 MLS SuperDraft by the Columbus Crew after a standout collegiate career at Lindsey Wilson. In three years with the Blue Raiders, Francis made 61 appearances while scoring seven goals and nine assists, captaining the team to the 2009 NAIA National Championship. Hailing from Mandeville, Jamaica, Francis earned his first cap for the Reggae Boyz in a friendly against Trinidad & Tobago on Oct. 10, 2010 and scored his first international goal against Guadeloupe on Nov. 29, 2010. Since his debut, Francis has five caps and one goal to his credit. MIKE MAGEE NAMED TO 2013 MLS ALL-STAR FAN XI Major League Soccer announced today that Fire forward Mike Magee has been named to the 2013 MLS All-Star Fan XI. The MLS All-Stars will face Italian giants AS Roma at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan. on Wednesday July 31 in the 2013 MLS All-Star Game at 8:00 p.m. CT (ESPN2/UniMas). The Fan XI received the most votes at their respective positions from combined fan voting on three platforms – online at MLSsoccer.com, via text message, and via Twitter. The ballot consisted of at least six players from each club, as chosen by a panel of media members. The All-Star nod is the first of Magee’s 11-year MLS career. The two-time MLS Cup champion with the Galaxy joined the Fire on May 25, 2013 and has scored seven goals in his first seven matches across all competitions. Magee’s four goals and two assists in MLS play have led the Fire to a 4-0-1 run since joining the club. Named MLS Player of the Month for March and June, Magee currently sits tied for first place in the tightly-contested MLS Golden Boot race with 11 goals on the season. A Chicago, Ill. native, Magee was the fourth overall selection in the 2003 MLS SuperDraft by the then New York/New Jersey MetroStars after a two-year stay at the U.S. Soccer Residency program in Bradenton, Fla. After six seasons with the New York side, Magee headed west when he was acquired by the Galaxy prior to the start of the 2009 season. The 28-year-old has 47 career goals and 26 assists in 240 career regular season games. CHICAGO FIRE FALL 3-2 TO LIGA MX CHAMPIONS CLUB AMERICA IN FRONT OF SELL-OUT CROWD OF 20,042 The Chicago Fire fell 3-2 to Liga MX champions Club America in an international friendly Wednesday evening at Toyota Park. Daniel Paladini and Sherjill MacDonald scored for the Fire but a Luis Gabriel Rey goal and two América penalty kicks proved the difference as Las Águilas emerged victorious. The Fire opened scoring in the 19th minute when Maicon Santos danced into the 18-yard-box and send a looping cross to Paladini on the far post. Paladini chested the ball down and with a side-volley, slammed the ball into the back of the net to give the Fire the 1-0 lead. The visitors would equalize six minutes later when Rey pounced on a loose ball in front of the goal and poked it in to bring Las Águilas level. América took the lead with their first penalty kick of the night in the 63rd minute when Paladini was whistled for a hand ball. Fire ‘keeper Paolo Tornaghi dove correctly to his left but Rey’s slotted the ensuing penalty kick just inside the post to give the visitors the 2-1 lead. América pulled further ahead in the 83rd minute when Michael Videira took down Antonio Lopez in the box. Lopez stepped up and sent his penalty to Tornaghi’s left to give his side the two goal advantage. The Men in Red would pull one back in 91st minute when Quincy Amarikwa slipped the ball in through the América defense for Sherjill MacDonald. The Dutchman raced towards goal and curved his shot past América ‘keeper Carlos Lopez as the game ended 3-2.
