Real Salt Lake return home following a two-game Eastern swing to take on D.C. United, Saturday night at Rio Tinto Stadium. United haven't won in five seasons in Utah, since winning there in Real's inaugural season. RSL took one point on their travels after a 1-1 draw in Philadelphia last time out. United saw a five-game unbeaten run come to an end in a 4-2 home loss to the San Jose Earthquakes.

Gold Cup: The best USA-Jamaica matchups of all time

Yanks undefeated in 17 games vs. Reggae Boyz; here are the top 3
Best of USA-Jamaica

The US national team is preparing to square off against Jamaica for the 17th time on Sunday in the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup, and if history has any say, the Yanks should be just fine.

The USMNT is undefeated all-time against the Reggae Boyz, boasting an impressive 9-0-8 record. But while history may be on their side, this is certainly not the same Jamaica team Americans have traditionally tamed.

WASHINGTON — The last time D.C. United hit the road, a two game road trip to Portland and Los Angeles yielded four points.

On Saturday night, DC will look to continue success away from the nation’s capital, this time against Real Salt Lake (9 pm ET, watch LIVE online). To achieve that, Ben Olsen’s men will look to emulate the efforts of two weeks ago.

We sat down with D.C. United midfielder Andy Najar earlier this week, Lenkersdorfer Fine Jewelers Man of
the Match
for United's last two games. The 18-year-old Honduran scored his first goal of the
season last Saturday against the San Jose Earthquakes at RFK Stadium. After having trouble finding his Rookie of the Year form at the beginning of the 2011 campaign, it
seems that Najar has secured his place in Ben Olsen’s
team.

Zayner eager to shake injury

WASHINGTON — It’s been a long, frustrating and injury-plagued season for D.C. United defender Jed Zayner in 2011.

A hamstring injury picked up in the season opener against the Columbus Crew has dogged him since mid-March, limiting him to only two league appearances and 131 minutes.

It’s also nullified any sort of contribution the 26-year-old hoped to have in his first full season with United.

“It’s been a long two-and-a-half-months … [especially] seeing the boys go up and down,” Zayner said.

Nos
sentamos a hablar con Andy Najar, mediocampista del D.C. United y figura del
equipo en los últimos partidos. El hondureño anotó su primer gol del año el
sábado pasado en la derrota frente a San José Earthquakes en el Estadio RFK.
Luego de tener problemas para ingresar en la formación inicial en el comienzo
de la temporada, el novato del año 2010 está atravesando un gran momento y ya
se ha convertido en un titular indiscutido en el equipo de Ben Olsen.

¿Cómo
está el vestuario este año?
