Bruce and the boys were back on the field today as the preparations are officially underway for Saturday's game in Kansas City.
-- Joe Franchino and Alvaro Pires were both back in training today after working with John Ireland over the last couple of days.
-- Tristan Bowen is still training, as is Vardan Adzemian, Scott Bolkan and Mike Graczyk, all of whom are expected to be with the club all week long.
-- Ante, David, Eddie and Landon will all be in action on Wednesday with their national teams. Ante and Canada play Mexico in Chiapas (6 p.m. Telemundo), David and England are in Croatia while Eddie and Landon are with the U.S. for their first home qualifier of the round against Trinidad and Tobago at Toyota Park in Chicago (5 p.m. ESPN2 and Galavision).
-- Three players who played a pivotal role in past Galaxy glory will face the club in Kansas City colors this weekend, with Kevin Hartman, Sasha Victorine and the newly-acquired Herculez Gomez all now calling K.C. home. However, of the 28 players currently on the Galaxy roster, only Alan Gordon and Peter Vagenas played with all three.
