Both teams subbed liberally and most of the goals came late in the two halves, but the result demonstrated the enormous difference in the depths of the two clubs. Of the five EPL-MLS matchups, the best result for the home team was the Columbus Crew's 2-2 tie with Crystal Palace.

-- Los Angeles Galaxy striker Robbie Keane after the Galaxy's 7-0 loss to Manchester United on Wednesday. (MLSSoccer.net)
