Spotlight: Nick DeLeon

DeLeon nets his first of the season

D.C. United midfielder Nick DeLeon scored a beautifully skillful goal against the New York Red Bulls. Dwayne De Rosario found DeLeon’s feet in the box, and the talented midfielder took a touch with his chest to settle, cut inside to beat pressure then beat Robles near post. The tally on Saturday night was DeLeon’s first goal of the MLS season, having last scored against the Chicago Fire in the U.S. Open Cup Semifinal.
