A roster of Major League Soccer’s Homegrown Players assembled on the eve of Wednesday’s All Star Game in Chicago to tangle with Chivas Guadalajara’s U-20 team.
It was a fun-enough watch, especially when Colorado Rapids defender (and Mother’s Day tear-jerker) Kortne Ford rose high to pop a long ball over the Chivas keeper.
The Homegrowns took a first minute lead via Chicago 18-year-old Djordje Mihailovic, who signed with the Fire this offseason and has made seven appearances for the club.

Despite New York Red Bulls goalkeeper Evan Louro’s best efforts, Chivas leveled things before halftime and Ruben Dominguez gave the Mexican side a lead with an unmistakable and mostly unstoppable goal.
