WASHINGTON.- Houston Dynamo se valió de un gol en propia puerta del defensor rival, Devon McTavish (min. 66), otro de su mediocampista Geoff Cameron (min. 70) y un tercero de Dominic Oduro (min. 98) para derrotar al D.C. United 3-1, en un entretenido partido realizado en el estadio RFK de la capital.

Con la victoria, el Dynamo mejoró su marca a 7-14-5 para con 26 puntos mantenerse con posibilidades matemáticas de alcanzar un boleto a la Liguilla de 2010, en la que marcha en las últimas casillas de la Conferencia Oeste.

WASHINGTON – With his game-winning goal against Toronto FC two weeks ago, D.C. United defender Julius James helped unleash havoc at his former club. Head coach Preki and general manager Mo Johnston were both sacked within days of the loss that nudged TFC further away from a playoff spot.

James is far too polite to admit it, but part of him surely took great satisfaction from making such an impact on the club that traded him to Houston less than a year after drafting him.

WASHINGTON — Their 2010 record does not match their reputation, but D.C. United interim coach Ben Olsen still expects a vintage Houston Dynamo performance when the Western Conference underachievers visit RFK Stadium on Saturday night.

WASHINGTON – Le toma mucho tiempo a un jugador de gran personalidad dejar atrás una carrera de 18 años en su continente y cruzar el océano para unirse a un conjunto en el último lugar de su liga en una tierra desconocida, especialmente cuando no hay muchos ánimos o salario de Jugador Franquicia a la espera.

Q&A: DC's Varela

WASHINGTON – It takes an enterprising player to leave behind an 18-year-career in one’s homeland and cross the ocean to join a last-place team in an unfamiliar land, especially when there’s no lavish hype or Designated Player wages waiting for you.

Carlos Varela won league titles, played on many of Europe’s biggest stages and experienced the rarified air of UEFA Champions League competition during his lengthy career in the Swiss first division. But in joining D.C. United at the tail end of a wearisome campaign, the 33-year-old has taken on an entirely new sort of challenge.
