WASHINGTON – With a team boasting former, current and possibly future US national team players, there was a buzz around D.C. United following Friday's announcement that Jurgen Klinsmann would take the helm for the Red, White and Blue.

“I think it’s exciting,” forward Charlie Davies said. “For all the players, I think everyone is excited. [Klinsmann], for me, is a legend and a world-class striker.”

It was perhaps no coincidence that D.C. United's impressive shutout on the road against the San Jose Earthquakes came just as center back Dejan Jakovic was making his first start since May 29.

Jakovic returned to the lineup for the 2-0 victory after a hamstring injury had shelved him for two months. The game also also marked the first MLS game in which he partnered with fellow center back Brandon McDonald, who joined DC from San Jose on June 27.

D.C. United hoped they’d be getting some extra punch to their offense when they acquired Dwayne De Rosario last month.

On Saturday night, he showed exactly why United wanted him. The veteran attacker scored twice in the second half to lead DC to another valuable road win, a 2-0 defeat of the San Jose Earthquakes at Buck Shaw Stadium.

“He’s a special player,” defender Dejan Jakovic told by phone after the match. “I was really excited when I first heard we got him because I know what he’s capable of doing, and that’s exactly what he did.”

Post match quotes


On tonight’s performance:
“I was just told we hadn’t won here in 13 years. This was a good thing. We got that monkey off our back. It’s always a tough place to play. In this league you get teams that are down on their luck with injuries. They (the Earthquakes) have a lot of them and you have to take advantage of it in this league. I was just happy we took advantage of a team that’s down on their luck. I was proud of the guys. Dwayne is obviously in a very special place.”
