Talking Strategy: D.C. United vs Colorado Rapids

"It’s all about staying together as a team.”
Talking Strategy: DCU v COL

After a two-game skid, D.C. United is poised to bounce back. The Black-and-Red has been resilient all year, dealing with injuries, rallying as a team after loses and playing as a one. This Sunday, that’s the game-plan.

“At the beginning of the year, we won games because we looked out for each other and worked hard for each other,” D.C. United defender Sean Franklin said. “We have to get back to that. It’s all about staying together as a team.”
