D.C. UNITED HEAD COACH BEN OLSEN
Overall thoughts on the match:
[New England] got through a half and then they got a set piece. And that’s what they do - they get set piece goals, it’s the one thing they are dangerous with.

WASHINGTON — When the United States U-18's head to Northern Ireland to defend their Milk Cup title this week, two D.C. United Academy players will get the chance to represent their country for the first time.
Midfielder Marcus Salandy-Defour and defender Jalen Robinson (pictured above), two fixtures of DC’s U-18 team this past season, earned call-ups on the heels of a fine year for the club in Development Academy league play.
The last few days have been a whirlwind for new D.C. United midfielder Austin da Luz. Shortly after riding the bench in New York’s 0-0 draw against Chivas USA on Saturday night, the second-year man learned he was getting traded to DC in exchange for an international roster slot.
“My first thought after I learned about the trade [was that] hopefully I’d be getting a greater opportunity to get some playing time,” he told MLSsoccer.com on Monday. “I think this trade is going to be a positive thing for me.”
