CARSON, Calif. (AP) - Brian McBride scored in his final game and Freddie Ljungberg added a goal and an assist to lead the Chicago Fire to a 4-1 victory over Chivas USA on Saturday night.
Calen Carr and Baggio Husidic also scored for the Fire (9-12-9). Giancarlo Maldonado scored for Chivas USA (8-18-4), which lost its final three games and six of its last seven.
McBride, who played in three World Cups for the United States, scored in the 40th minute with an assist from Ljungberg, who played for Sweden in the 2002 World Cup.
Ljungberg took a throw-in, dribbled past two defenders in the right side of the penalty area and passed to McBride, whose 7-yard shot with the back heel of his right foot settled inside the left post.

After having a few days to reflect on the Bears' first-round pick in the NFL Draft, CSN's Alex Brown remains unimpressed.
The former Bears defensive end dropped by In the Loop to discuss his overall thoughts on the pick.
"I'm still not very happy about it," Brown said of Ryan Pace's decision to trade up and select North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. "But I think what we can take from it is Ryan Pace, these guys they're looking down down the road. Not this year, not next year but maybe that third year."

Although Brown wasn't high on Trubisky, he did have positive reviews for fourth-rounder Eddie Jackson. The safety from Alabama gives Vic Fangio's defense a new option at a position where they desperately need playmakers.
