Saturday kickaround: MLS, D.C. United, U.S. vs. Argentina, Chad Ochocinco

*In a rare Friday night MLS match, Steve Zakuani scored late as the Seattle Sounders broke out of their scoreless rut and salvaged a point — their first of the season after two defeats — to draw with the visiting Houston Dynamo, 1-10. Read the Seattle Times’ account.

*Today’s fixtures:

Toronto-Portland, 2 p.m.

Columbus-New York, 4 p.m.

Philadelphia-Vancouver, 4 p.m.

Chicago-Kansas City, 4 p.m. (Telefutura)

New England-D.C. United, 4:30 p.m. (Comcast SportsNet/DC)

Dallas-San Jose, 9 p.m.

Real Salt Lake-Los Angeles, 9 p.m.

Chivas USA-Colorado, 10:30 p.m.

*To preview United’s first away match, I reintroduce vet­eran forward Josh Wolff. Here’s what the story (and cool photo) looks like in the print edition. United will be without three starters: defender Perry Kitchen (U.S. under-20 duty), defender Jed Zayner (hamstring) and midfielder Clyde Simms (calf).

For much more.....

*While I am in Foxborough with United, Post colleague Paul Tenorio is overseeing the U.S. national team friendly against Argentina at the Meadowlands. In his preview, Paul examines the U.S. midfield options heading forward in 2011 and beyond. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. ET (ESPN2, Univision).

*With humor, columnist Tracee Hamilton assesses NFL star Chad Ochocinco’s tryout with Sporting Kansas City.
