Given the “massive test” that awaits the Chicago Fire in their US Open Cup semifinal clash at the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday evening (10:30 pm ET, stream on SoundersFC.com), head coach Frank Yallop will be putting out a “team to win” against MLS’s current top team.

The Fire have a storied past with the Open Cup, with four victories and two final appearances placing them atop the current MLS pile, with the Sounders just one title behind them with three wins.
