WASHINGTON — The development of D.C. United’s promising young goalkeeper Bill Hamid continues to catch the eye of the new US national team coaching staff.
Andy Najar’s explosive career continues to take off. With
three goals and four assists in 21 matches (18 starts) this season, the 2010 MLS Rookie of
the Year has matured into one of the League’s most promising players. Now,
the young Honduran is ready to take the next step in his career by entering the
international scene, as the Honduras National Team gets ready to face Colombia
and Paraguay in friendly matches.
Citing general public safety concerns because of the anticipated impact of Hurricane Irene, Major League Soccer has postponed the game between D.C. United and the Portland Timbers, previously scheduled for tomorrow at RFK Stadium.
The game will be rescheduled and the new date and time announced next week. Tickets from Saturday’s contest will be valid on the make-up date.
Najar ha demostrado últimamente por qué es una de las piezas claves del D.C.
United. Con tres goles y cuatro asistencias en 21 partidos (18 de titular), el
joven catracho se ha afianzado como una de las grandes promesas de la Liga. Gracias
a su gran desempeño, Najar fue convocado una vez más por la Selección Nacional
de Honduras para disputar dos partidos amistosos frente a Colombia y Paraguay. El mediocampista de 18 años se mostró motivado
y agradecido por la oportunidad de vestir la Bicolor por primera vez.
