SEATTLE -- Clint Dempsey didnt have much to say about the two-game suspension he received from Major League Soccer. Fourteen words to be exact. "Disappointed. I dont agree with it. It is what it is and move on," Dempsey said after the Seattle Sounders wrapped practice on Thursday. The real concern for some is that the suspension came right before a major U.S. national team exhibition against Mexico next Wednesday. By the time Dempsey takes the field against Mexico in Glendale, Ariz., it will have been more than two weeks since Dempsey last played. And while its just an exhibition, its significant because it will be the last U.S. match before World Cup camp begins in May. "Its a friendly, its not a World Cup qualifier so theres not much pressure that there would be if it was a World Cup qualifying game," Dempsey said. "But its still exciting to represent your country and to play against one of your rivals." Dempsey was suspended and fined for violent conduct toward Toronto FC defender Mark Bloom in a March 15 match. Dempsey hit Bloom in the stomach/groin area, a blow not seen by officials but that was captured by television cameras. Dempsey said after the match that he was trying to slap Blooms hand off his back and did not intend to strike his body. The MLS players union appealed but the suspension was upheld. Dempsey sat last week when Seattle won at Montreal and will be a spectator Saturday when the Sounders host Columbus. Hell return to MLS play on April 5 when Seattle travels to rival Portland. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann was one of Dempseys most vocal supporters after the suspension was announced. He was quick to point out the number of fouls Dempsey has taken since returning to MLS. "Its very disappointing to see Clint be the only person punished from this game," Klinsmann said last week. "There is a foul against him in the sixth minute that should have been a red card. The persistent fouling continued throughout the game, and hes getting punished for a reaction following all those fouls. Yes he made a mistake, but if opponents dont get penalized for consistently fouling, it only encourages them to continue that approach." According to stats provided by MLS, Dempsey is the most fouled player in the league since Aug. 10 of last season. Dempsey, the U.S. captain, appreciated Klinsmanns concern. "Yeah, for sure its always good that the manager has your back and I appreciate that," Dempsey said. "All I can do is keep working hard and keep working on my fitness after training and making sure I play well when Im with the national team, like I have always done in the past. And make sure I keep playing good with the national team moving forward and pay him back for his faith in me." Dempsey said one solution to the fouls would be for more yellow cards to be handed out earlier in the match. He believes that could create a better rhythm to the game. "I think its important to protect every player," Dempsey said. "The sooner you start giving the cards for reckless fouls then it cuts down on a lot of things and it makes the game more exciting to watch because there is more free flow to it." C.J.

Bayern, which had already qualified for the knockout stages from Group D, took the lead through Arjen Robben in the 17th minute. Mario Goetze made it 2-0 with a solo effort early in the second half. Keisuke Honda scored a penalty for CSKA in the 62nd, but Thomas Mueller converted one for the visitors just three minutes later to restore the German sides two-goal advantage. CSKA, which couldnt qualify for the knockout stages, opened strongly on a frozen pitch under a heavy snowfall at the Arena Khimki in Moscows suburbs. Kirill Nababkin met Hondas corner kick and the ball fell for Zoran Tosic. But his low shot in the box was deflected away by Dante in the sixth minute. Four minutes later, keeper Manuel Neuer blocked Pontus Wernblooms header from another Honda corner. However, Bayern gradually seized the initiative and Mueller broke down the left flank to send in a cross for Robben who gave Igor Akinfeev no chance, hitting the back of the net with a left-foot shot from seven meters on the visitors first scoring opportunity. Honda created a chance for an equalizer one minute into first-time injury time, putting Ahmed Musa through on goal, only for Neuer to smother the Nigerian strikers poke. The Japanese midfielder had two clear chances to equalize early in the second half but failed to beat Neuer in a one-on-one aftter latching on to Akinfeevs long kick and then missed again a minute later with the goal wide open following a cross from the right.dddddddddddd Goetze added Bayerns second after he rounded four CSKA players and curled the ball into the far corner of the net in the 65th minute. CSKA, which 3-0 lost in Munich, finally scored but from the spot after a handball by Dante. But there was soon a spot-kick at the other end after defender Georgy Schennikov fouled Robben in the box and Mueller beat Akinfeev with a low shot into the left corner. The home side created several more chances but had no luck, with Tosic hitting the crossbar in the 78th. "We had several clear scoring opportunities in the second half," CSKA coach Leonid Slutsky said. "But it was all about capitalizing. Unfortunately we failed to convert them. Im really pleased with the way we played in the second half." Bayern coach Pep Guardiola focused more on the conditions. "It was a difficult game on a tough pitch and under a heavy snowfall," he said. Bayern had equalled Barcelonas 2002-03 record of nine wins in a row three weeks ago Bayern leads Group D with 15 points. CSKA has three points for third, six points behind second place Manchester City which has also reached the last 16 and was playing Viktoria Plzen later. Bayern will next face Manchester City on Dec. 10, while CSKA will be on the road to Plzen to play for a spot in the Europa League.
