Coming off back-to-back wins, Landon Donovan and the Galaxy will look to make it three in a row against the Fire.

Moments after the U.S. national team wraps its second World Cup warm-up game Sunday in New Jersey, Landon Donovan and the LA Galaxy will kick off some 800 miles away.

Playing his second game since being left off the USA's final World Cup roster, Donovan will look to lead the Galaxy (4-3-3) to their third straight victory when they visit the 2-3-6 Chicago Fire (4 p.m. ET, MLS Live).

Donovan responded to his snub by recording two goals and an assist in a 4-1 win over Philadelphia last weekend, with his first goal breaking the all-time MLS scoring record.

Although the Galaxy will still be missing U.S. center back Omar Gonzalez, they should have Marcelo Sarvas available after the midfielder missed five matches with an MCL sprain. For the Fire, center back Bakary Soumare is a question mark with a calf injury.
