de D.C. United Pat Onstad ha realizado un sorpresivo movimiento del banquillo

palos. A pesar de tener disponibles al portero Chase Harrison y al jugador de
primer año Joe Willis, quienes se han venido desarrollando bien en el
campamento del equipo, el club consideró que es muy importante tener en la
escuadra a un jugador de alta experiencia.
