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.
DC United head coach Ben Olsen
We didn't lose. This is one of the toughest places to play in summer.
You look at Dallas when you get the schedule and you're hoping you get
them early or late. Today was just one of those days where either team
could have taken it. They certainly had better chances and they were
probably more aggressive in the offensive part, but give the guys credit
it's not easy to come out here and shut down a very athletic and fast
team. Overall, it was very good point for us.
Washington, D.C. (July 16, 2011) - D.C. United announced today a trade that sees the Black-and-Red sending to New York a 2011 international roster slot in exchange for future considerations.
FC Dallas return to league action when they play host to D.C. United on Saturday evening at Pizza Hut Park. FCD saw its three-game winning streak come to an end last weekend in a 2-0 loss at Real Salt Lake, though getting a measure of revenge in a defeat of RSL in a US Open Cup quarterfinal at midweek. United are coming off a big 1-0 victory at the New York Red Bulls last weekend.
