GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala – The United States U-20 national team got the start they wanted in their opening match of the CONCACAF Championship on Tuesday night, putting four past an overmatched Suriname squad.
Bobby Wood, Joe Gyau (above) and Conor Doyle tallied in the first half, while Kelyn Rowe's late second-half effort capped off a 4-0 night for the organized and impressive US squad at Estadio Mateo Flores.
WASHIGNTON – D.C. United rookie defender Chris Korb doesn’t like to lose. That much was clear even a few days after the 23-year-old made his professional debut in a 2-1 defeat at New England.
Starting at the right back for injured regular Jed Zayner, the Akron product looked comfortable in DC’s defense and was glad to get that first pro experience done and dusted.
“It was exciting to get that first game out of the way,” Korb told MLSsoccer.com. “I wish we would have won. It’s never fun when you lose and I’m pretty competitive, so it wasn’t the best first game.”
As part of D.C. United’s continued efforts to make appearances in the community and through its partnership with Volkswagen, D.C. United players will be active in the Metropolitan Area following two weeks of MLS regular season play.
Midfielder Chis Pontius and rookie goalkeeper Joe Willis will both be appearing at Food & Friends on Wednesday, March 30th from 1:30 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. Food & Friends prepares, packages, and delivers meals and groceries to more than 2,800 people living with life-challenging illnesses throughout the D.C. Metro area.

HARRISON, N.J. – MLS Commissioner Don Garber confirmed on Tuesday that the first-ever participation of MLS clubs in the World Football Challenge (WFC) this year will take the place of SuperLiga on the league’s summer calendar between July 14 and Aug. 6.
The primary reason for the shift from SuperLiga, a competition which pitted MLS clubs against their Mexican counterparts? The growth of the CONCACAF Champions League.
