El Fire se prende y el United se hunde aún más

Chicago se impuso 2-0 a D.C. con goles de Pappa y McBride
Jornada 4 MLS

Si bien la temporada 2010 recién comienza, ya que estamos apenas en la cuarta fecha, ya se disputan partidos de los denomiados claves, los que se tienen que ganar sí o sí. Justamente esa era la consigna del D.C. United y el Chicago Fire la noche del sábado en el Estadio RFK, donde ambos equipos buscaban desesperadamente un triunfo que les permitiera tomar aire y abandonar la parte baja de la tabla.

Recap: DCU - Chicago

The Chicago Fire snatched their first victory of the season with an assured 2-0 win over a dreary-looking D.C. United side at RFK Stadium on Saturday night, with late goals from Marco Pappa and substitute Brian McBride securing all three points in a battle of early-season strugglers.

United saw plenty of possession but once again looked hesitant and confused in and around the Fire goal, while several of their defensive errors went unpunished before Pappa’s composed strike turned the match Chicago’s way in the 80th minute.

RFK Stadium’s home locker room was full of bleary eyes, distant stares and bewildered shrugs on Saturday night.

A 2-0 loss to the Chicago Fire left a downcast D.C. United side contemplating a four-game losing skid that has matched the club record for worst-ever start to the season, and wondering if they’re even giving the fans what they deserve.

“That wasn’t attractive for anybody,” said a dejected Santino Quaranta. “People are paying good money to see that – we’ve got to get better.”

WASHINGTON – Aunque claramente hay motivos para preocuparse, tanto cuerpo técnico como jugadores del D.C. United aseguran que el equipo se encuentra con la moral en alto y preparado para recibir este sábado al Chicago Fire en su sede del Estadio RFK.

Por donde se mire, los capitalinos han tenido un pésimo arranque de temporada en el que suman tres derrotas al hilo, con nueve goles en contra y apenas dos veces a favor, cifras que los mantienen en el sótano de la Conferencia Este.
