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.
Cruzeiro and Fluminense took
advantage of the break in the Brazilian championship due to the Confederations Cup to play in Florida last weekend.
Cruzeiro beat the NASL Ft. Lauderdale
Strikers, 4-0, before 5,724 fans at Lockhart Stadium, while Flu downed Orlando City, 4-2, in front of 11,127 fans at the Florida Citrus Bowl.
