WASHINGTON — Life on the road has been a pleasant surprise for D.C. United this year as the club has already picked up 12 points in nine games away from RFK. They’ll look to keep that trend going this weekend when they travel to the Bay Area to face the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday (10:30 PM EST; Comcast SportsNet).
WASHINGTON — Two familiar faces returned to training for D.C. United this week, and it was a welcome sight.
Midfielder Brandon Barklage and forward Blake Brettschneider (above) were back in action on Tuesday after spending time on the sidelines recovering from concussions picked up in the past month.
“It’s good to be back out here,” Brettschneider said. “Fortunately [it’s] not as hot as it’s been the last couple of weeks, it’s a little bit nicer to come back.”
WASHINGTON, DC — For the sixth time in his lengthy MLS career, D.C. United midfielder Dwayne De Rosario was recognized as an MLS All-Star.
However, his status as an inactive All-Star — not on the game day roster — means that he can remain focused on his new club and won’t make the mid-week journey up north to face Manchester United.
The Canadian international saw the silver lining in not making the trip up to Red Bull Arena on Wednesday.
