Brian McBride still can’t stop scoring in the States – but the problem is Chicago Fire are looking a little vulnerable at the back. The former Fulham captain put his MLS side two goals to the good against the Kansas City Wizards but some slack defending meant they had to settle for a draw.

McBride scored the opening goal after 13 minutes, punishing some poor defending to finish with aplomb. His second was a trademark header as he powered in a free-kick from Cuauhtemoc Blanco. But the Wizards came storming back as two late goals from ex-Fire striker Josh Wolff secured a point.

Afterwards, McBride was bitterly disappointed.

This is definitely not a good feeling right now. We felt we good have done better. Any time you lose a two goal lead, it stings.
