Henry, Ljungberg shoot blanks
The first Major League Soccer meeting between former Arsenal team-mates Thierry Henry and Freddie Ljungberg ended in a stalemate as Chicago Fire and New York Red Bulls played out a 0-0 draw.
Ljungberg made his first home start for Chicago, but the Fire were unable to breach a Red Bulls defence which featured former Barcelona defender Rafael Marquez on his debut. Henry played for 45 minutes up front for New York, alongside former Aston Villa striker Juan Pablo Angel.
Seattle Sounders, Ljungberg's former club, claimed a 2-0 win over Houston Dynamo. Freddy Montero netted after 64 minutes and Alvaro Fernandez added a second two minutes from time.
Substitute Jeff Cunningham scored twice as FC Dallas came from behind to beat ten-man Philadelphia Union 3-1. Philadelphia went in front through Alejandro Moreno after nine minutes, but goalkeeper Brad Knighton was dismissed as he conceded a penalty which was converted by David Ferreira after 22 minutes. Cunningham then struck after 75 minutes and 81 minutes to earn the hosts three points.
