[MLS 2014 COUNTDOWN] Americans aren't the only ones moving to MLS in search for playing time to boost their World Cup hopes. Brazil national team keeper Julio Cesar was set to join Toronto FC on a short-term loan from Queens Park Rangers, the former club of TFC coach Ryan Nelsen. For more on the move and the Saturday preseason action.

Julio Cesar is not starting for QPR, though he was the Brazil starter in its 2013 Confederations Cup title run. He has 77 caps for Brazil.

QPR was expected to pay the bulk of the 34-year-old Julio Cesar's hefty contract. Toronto already has signed three Designated Players during the offseason: Michael Bradley, Jermain Defoe and Gilberto.

Young Joe Bendik was the Toronto goalie in 2013 and expected to start in 2014.



HOUSTON-SAN JOSE. The Houston Dynamo got three second-half goals from Omar Cummings, Spanish trialist Sito Seoane and newly acquired Tony Cascio, on loan from Colorado, to earn a 3-1 comeback win over the San Jose Earthquakes in Tucson. Chris Wondolowski had given the Quakes the lead in the 21st minute.

-- In the second game at Kino Sports Complex, the Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers played to a 0-0 tie.

LA GALAXY-SHIRAK FC. Brazilian newcomer Samuel scored his first goal for the LA Galaxy and second-year winger Gyasi Zardes had the winner as the LA Galaxy beat Armenia's Shirak FC, 2-1, before 12,447 fans at StubHub Center.



-- Playing with mostly reserves and newcomers, Real Salt Lake played to a 1-1 tie with UC Irvine in a closed scrimmage at Anteater Stadium. Luke Mulholland, who was picked up from the NASL's Tampa Bay Rowdies in the offseason, had the RSL goal.

CHICAGO-D.C. UNITED. Homegrown product Harry Shipp out of NCAA champion Notre Dame tallied a goal and assist as the Chicago Fire won its second consecutive preseason match with a 2-0 win over D.C. United. Shipp scored the first goal, then broke in from he left to set up trialist Grant Ward, a Tottenham academy product, for the second.

-- Antoine Hoppenot led the Philadelphia Union with three goals in its 9-1 win over the University of North Florida.
