MLS game #5: DCU vs. New England
Tonight, D.C. United faces the New England Revolution for the first time in 2009. The game is set to kickoff at 7 p.m. ET at RFK Stadium and will be broadcast on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes. You can listen on the radio in English (1050 AM) or in Spanish (730 AM).
The coaching staff will have a difficult task ahead of them this evening, as nearly every player on the 24-man roster is available. The only two players still listed on the injury list are Josh Wicks (hip flexor straing) and Greg Janicki (post-concussion syndrome), and they're listed as 'probable.'
