Allsopp, DC pleased with shock win at Colorado

Allsopp, DC happy to win

Most goal-scorers explode into life after they find the net – leaps, fist pumps, racing away to celebrate with fans, perhaps even performing a few dance moves.

But there was nothing of the sort from Danny Allsopp at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on Saturday night.

When the big striker scooped the ball into the net to hand D.C. United a hard-earned lead over the Colorado Rapids just before halftime, it represented a major breakthrough for him and his team. However, he simply turned and walked back towards the center circle as his teammates arrived to congratulate him.

Post-match quotes: D.C. United 1 - Colorado Rapids 0

Quotes: DC at COL



United da la sorpresa ante Rapids

Ganó 1-0, su primera victoria en más de una década en Colorado
DC da la sorpresa

Si hay algo bueno que tiene la MLS,
es la paridad de la liga, el hecho de que cualquier equipo le puede ganar a
cualquiera en un momento determinado, sin importar lo que diga la tabla de posiciones.

Esto volvió a quedar demostrado la
noche del sábado en el Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, donde el colista D.C. United
venció a domicilio por 1-0 a los Rapids, discutiblemente el mejor equipo del
momento y, salvo una debacle de proporciones épicas, uno de los ocho
clasificados a la Liguilla.

WASHINGTON — In a league marked by persistent parity, the history between D.C. United and the Colorado Rapids has played out with a reassuring sort of predictability, guided by one dominant rule: the home side hardly ever loses.

Perhaps there are advantages provided by altitude on one side and summer humidity on the other, or maybe it’s mere happenstance. But United have not won in Colorado in more than a decade, while the Rapids can claim just three wins all-time in the nation’s capital.

We have reached the cream of the crop in the rankings of the 24 Under 24 – the top 24 players under the age of 24. Today's five names include a 2010 Rookie of the Year candidate, two Chicago Fire players, Braunaldinho and the lowest SuperDraft pick in the entire list.

With a career high nine goals in 2010, the stock of "Braunaldinho" Justin Braun (No. 10) has risen considerably this year.
