We're here live-blogging tonight's New England Revolution-Houston Dynamo game under overcast skies, and The Who's "Baba O'Riley'' blasting from the speakers.

New England is in first place in the Eastern Conference of the MLS with a record of 10-4-3, 33 points, while the Houston Dynamo (6-4-8, 26 points) are coming off a 2-0 win over the Columbus Crew this past Saturday.

Each team is missing a key player on Olympic duty in China, Michael Parkhurst of the Revolution (2007 MLS Defender of the Year) and young midfield standout Stuart Holden of the Dynamo. (If you haven't seen it, catch Parkhurst's diary entry today from China).

Tonight marks the finals of the Superliga tournament, which brought together top MLS and Mexican league teams. Before tonight's game, the players entered with the hardware -- the Superliga trophy that will be award to the winner.

Onto the lineups:

Houston (3-4-3)
Pat Onstad Keeper
Wade Barrett (captain), Bobby Boswell, Craig Waibel- Defense
Ricardo Clark, Geoff Cameron, Brian Mullan, Brad Davis - Midfield
Dwanye De Rosario, Nate Jaqua, Brian Ching - Forwards

New England (3-5-2)
Matt Reis - Keeper
Chris Tierney, Amaechi Igwe, Chris Albright - Defense
Sainey Nyassi, Steve Ralston (captain), Shalrie Joseph, Jeff Larentowicz, Mauricio Castro - Midfield
Kenny Mansally, Kheli Dube - Forwards

We'll be updating throughout the night.
