[MLS: Week 16] Just three days after losing to Portland in the U.S. Open Cup, Sporting Kansas City got revenge with a 1-0 win on Lawrence Olum's first-half goal.

The win moved Sporting KC into a tie for first place with D.C. United. The loss continued the Timbers' troubles at home, where they have just one win in 10 games.

Just four days after Australia played its last World Cup game, Tim Cahill was back in action for the New York Red Bulls, assisting on Bradley Wright-Phillips’ stoppage-time goal -- his league-high 12th goal of the season -- that earned them a 2-2 tie with Toronto FC at Red Bull Arena.

    The second Toronto goal should have been called offside. The offside rule indicates that if a player is interfering with the goalkeeper and he is in an offside position, the goal should be called offside even if he didn't touch the ball. Why would Toronto place a player so close to the goalkeeper and in an apparent offside position if not to distract the keeper?
