[WORLD CUP COUNTDOWN] Brian Ching, out since April 2 with a strained left hamstring, might return to action with the Houston Dynamo this week. He could play as soon as Wednesday in Houston's game against Kansas City. More likely, he'll begin his comeback on Saturday against Chivas USA.

Based on his strong play in the February friendly against El Salvador, Ching was expected to be a sure pick. But his injury clouded the picture upfront for the U.S. World Cup team.

“I try not to focus on the World Cup,” Ching said on Tuesday. “Do I think about it? Yeah. Is there pressure to get back on the field before he has to make his decision? Yeah. At this point, I’m not going to compromise getting injured again with rushing back onto the field.”

Ching, 32, suffered a setback in training last week when he strained a calf muscle.

The strong spring seasons by Edson Buddle (nine goals in six matches for the Los Angeles Galaxy) and Herculez Gomez (who tied for first with 10 goals for Puebla in Mexico's Torneo Bicentenario) give Bradley additional choices.

If Ching can't go, other candidates include the Colorado Rapids' Conor Casey and Eddie Johnson of Greek club Aris.

    Ummm, Houston's game tonight is against FC Dallas, not Kansas City.
