D.C. UNITED HEAD COACH BEN OLSEN

On Luis Silva:

“He worked very hard in the first half. We asked him to be more involved. In the last two games, he just wasn’t touching the ball enough, and to get the ball, you need to work hard, pick up second balls, be constantly on the move, and he did a better job of that tonight. Obviously, he capped it off with a very good goal.”
