D.C. United kicked off their midseason makeover in earnest on Tuesday morning, introducing new signing Pablo Hernandez to the media after a hot, hazy training session at the RFK Stadium auxiliary fields.

“Obviously, I’m excited to be here,” said the 23-year-old Argentinean via translator. “I’m coming here planning to work hard and give everything I have for the team, hopefully get myself into the team and just sacrifice for the club. I’m thankful for the opportunity.”

Victories and points have been frustratingly scarce commodities for D.C. United this season, but the emergence of rookie Andy Najar has brought a welcome dose of excitement and hope to the Black-and-Red, and the teenage Honduran came up big again in San Jose on Saturday night, netting an instinctive second-half volley to earn his team a 1-1 draw at Buck Shaw Stadium.

D.C. UNITED HEAD COACH CURT ONALFO

On if the 1-1 draw was a fair result

“[It was a] tale of two half’s. I don’t think we we’re very good the first half. I thought we got out-competed and a gave up a goal off a set-piece which was a major point of emphasis going into the game knowing they’re very good off corner kicks. So I was disappointed but I was pleased with the response. I thought the second half we were the better team. San Jose was the better team in the first half; we were the better team in the second.

Progress in the US Open Cup has offered D.C. United a welcome dose of success amidst a difficult league campaign this year.

And the first of back-to-back road matches should reveal plenty about United’s midsummer prospects.
