Red Bulls relish shot at Guadalajara

that's how you get your foot in the door and it's up to you to take that opportunity and make the most of it," Stammler said. "I think for the most part, the guys have done really well to come in and contribute in a positive manner."

And the Red Bulls players are looking forward to playing in the University of Phoenix Stadium, which is the primary home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals and the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The stadium, which has a retractable roof and field and seats 63,400, was the site of the U.S. national team's 2-0 victory against Mexico on Feb. 7, 2002.

The Red Bulls will be the first Major League Soccer team to play at the University of Phoenix Stadium.

"It can't get much better than this," van den Bergh said. "The stadium looks beautiful and I'm just hoping we could get a good crowd out for tomorrow."

Chivas will also face FC Dallas on its two-match U.S. tour on Sunday at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, Texas.
