Chris Rolfe and Fabián Espíndola have stepped up in a big way for D.C. United in 2014. Rolfe, has been playing in his secondary position and still scoring goals for the Black-and-Red. Espíndola has been both getting himself and other on the score sheet, registering five goals and five assists thus far.

Last match, United didn’t have the start it wanted. The persistence and mental strength of the group came through, though, finding a way to grab a point from the match.

“Energy-wise, everyone understands it wasn’t perfect,” Assistant Coach Preston Burpo said. “Everyone understands there have been a couple games we start off a little slow, and we’d like to change the mentality of that from the get-go.”
