Davies cleared to play

WASHINGTON –D.C. United should get a much-needed boost this weekend in the form of a healthy Charlie Davies and a defensive line back together for the first time since the season opener.

Davies, who skipped last weekend's 4-1 drubbing against the Colorado Rapids while nursing a groin injury, said this week that he sat the game out for precautionary reasons and will be ready when DC host the LA Galaxy on Saturday night (7:30 pm ET, Direct Kick, MatchDay Live).

Davies leads the team in scoring with three goals in two matches this season.

WASHINGTON- Charlie Davies, Josh Wolff y Andy Najar enfrentarán con el D.C. United a Landon Donovan, David Beckham y Juan Pablo Ángel de LA Galaxy, en lo que será el primer capítulo del año de la vieja rivalidad entre estas dos plantillas que se medirán el sábado a las 7:30pm ET en el Estadio RFK.

A pesar de llegar al encuentro con un récord negativo de 1-2-0, 3pts, el United llega motivado en su dramático triunfo de mitad de semana ante el Philadelphia Union en clasificatorio para la Copa Abierta Lamar Hunt.

WASHINGTON – While Saturday’s clash with the LA Galaxy brings one of the highest profile teams to town, it’s just like any other league matchup for D.C. United.

“As professionals, you want to approach every game the same,” midfielder Dax McCarty said. “No team, no opponent is any bigger than another opponent. We’re going to treat it just like any other game.”

GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala — Less than nine hours after the United States U-20 national team lost 2-1 to the host nation in the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Championship, Dillon Powers wandered into the departure area at La Aurora International Airport.

The Notre Dame midfielder, still wearing a tournament credential that read "jugador" around his neck, joined teammates Omar Salgado, Kelyn Rowe and a few other members of the US team as they sat in varying stages of dejection, waiting for flights that would send them to varying destinations around the world.

Goalkeepers are a different breed. We all know that. No one else in soccer gets away with wearing head-to-toe DayGlo green.

We joke – a bit. It’s a given that ‘keepers generally ooze more personality than the average soccer player. They’re often the go-to quotes for media members, and they’re the first guys to be alternately beloved and heckled by fans.
