WASHINGTON – It’s never easy to overcome a slow start in MLS, going down two goals early in the first half. Try doing it against an English Premier League side.
D.C. United were unable to accomplish that Saturday night against Everton, as the home side conceded two goals within the game’s first 20 minutes in a 3-1 loss.
“We can’t put ourselves behind 2-0 to a good team,” midfielder Chris Pontius said. “Can’t do that in MLS, can’t do that against an EPL team. You’re chasing the game the whole time.”

D.C. United's mission statement:
D.C. United will win championships, and serve the community.
RFK Stadium is allowing fans to bring two unopened 20 oz. bottles of water into the match Saturday.
WASHINGTON — Getting to face a team from Europe is always an experience D.C. United look forward to, and Saturday night will be no exception as the club takes on English Premier League side Everton at RFK Stadium (7:30 pm ET, FOX Soccer).
“Any time our players get a chance to play against some of the better teams in Europe, it’s a great experience for us,” head coach Ben Olsen said.
United for D.C., the charitable arm of D.C. United, will hold a silent auction inside of RFK Stadium's Main Gate on Saturday, July 23 before the international friendly match between D.C. United and Everton.
The auction will feature a team signed Everton jersey and a team signed D.C. United third jersey. The silent auction will begin at 6:00 PM ET (immediately after the RFK Stadium gates open) and will end at halftime. All proceeds will go to United for D.C.'s community programs.

D.C. United anunció hoy el itinerario del club para el viernes, 22 de julio, día previo al amistoso internacional con el Everton Football Club de Inglaterra. El primer partido entre los dos equipos será el sábado, 23 de julio en el Estadio RFK a las 7:30 p.m. Hora del Este.
WASHINGTON — For D.C. United, the chances came early and often against a beleaguered New England Revolution side. A combination of poor finishing — including a missed penalty kick by striker Charlie Davies in the 44th minute — and a strong performance from Revs ‘keeper Matt Reis let all those chances go begging, however, as the Black and Red fell 1-0 at RFK.
