D.C. United Academy star Ian Harkes rubs elbows with Frank Lampard

By Sarah Lerner

Traveling with his father, D.C. United legend John Harkes to the UK, Black-and-Red Academy standout Ian Harkes met and took a picture with Chelsea FC superstar Frank Lampard. Harkes and Lampard are posing for the camera at Stamford Bridge, the Blues' storied stadium in central London. Lampard recently tallied his 200th goal for Chelsea against former team West Ham United on March 18.

Currently featuring for the United U-18s, Harkes will be headed to Wake Forest University to play collegiate soccer in the fall.
