  • The Metros will now be without Gaven and fullback Tim Ward (out through a hamstring injury on Tuesday) for about the next month, as both have been included in the U.S. under-20 team for the FIFA World Youth Championships in Holland.
  • The MetroStars did receive another injury blow in the Fire game, as Djorkaeff was forced off at halftime with a left calf strain and is doubtful for the weekend. "We rely a lot on Youri," Guevara said. "With him coming out we know we to step up. We did. It took us a little bit longer because they scored on us. We did what we were supposed to do, we got together and then we got the victory."
  • The Metros head back on the road above .500 for the season having gained nine points out of a possible 12 on their travels, and with nine goals scored and just two allowed.
