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.”

D.C. United anunció hoy que el equipo ha adquirido al mediocampista Austin da Luz de los New York Red Bulls como parte del acuerdo en el que D.C. envió una vacante internacional a New York el sábado.
“Estamos entusiasmados en sumar a un mediocampista zurdo a nuestro equipo”, dijo el Gerente General del D.C. United Dave Kasper. “Austin es un jugador inteligente y de buena técnica que está comenzando a delinear su camino como profesional, y estamos entusiasmados por su futuro”.
It may not have been the long-sought second win in a row, but D.C. United come away pleased with the 0-0 draw on the road against a tough FC Dallas squad.
Playing in searing heat, with kickoff temperatures hovering at triple digits in Frisco, chances were few and far between for both sides, as D.C. tied Dallas for the second time in 2011.
Although consecutive wins have proven elusive this season, United will take the result, having collected four points – including a 1-0 win in New York – on a two-game road swing for the second time this season.
