[DATEBOOK] Another busy summer of international action kicks this weekend with international matches at two MLS stadiums: Morelia-Cruzeiro at the Chicago Fire's Toyota Park and Cruz Azul-Club America at FC Dallas Stadium.

Six Mexican clubs will be in action July 6 in California, and at least 23 foreign clubs -- including nine from Mexico, five from England and four from Italy -- will be touring over the next six weeks.
