WASHINGTON – D.C. United sent one representative to Wednesday night’s MLS All-Star Game, and a very deserving one at that, given Jaime Moreno’s dazzling exploits over a 15-year career. But United fans and officials were hoping the MLS original would have a teammate in Houston.
HOUSTON – After Philadelphia had Manchester United on the ropes and
Kansas City defeated the Red Devils on Sunday, there is real hope the MLS
All-Stars can defeat the perennial EPL contenders in
Wednesday night's All-Star Game.
Add the fact that Manchester United is finishing up
preseason training and that their back line has not exactly proven a
defensive fortress, and it leads to the belief that a special result is
possible at Reliant.
D.C. United's U-17s defeated the Columbus Crew U-17s at the 2010 SUM U-17 Cup with several superb goals.
Tonight, Jaime Moreno will take part in the MLS All-Star game. The MLS All-Stars will be coached by Moreno's old boss, Bruce Arena as they take on Manchester United. Moreno was added to the All-Star roster as a 'Commissioner Pick', and MLS commissioner Don Garber had the following comments about the league's all-time leading scorer, "Jaime Moreno is one of the best players in the history of Major League Soccer. His selection to the All-Star team honors his 15 years of service in the league as the lone remaining player to have competed in every MLS season.
D.C. United have mystified fans and observers in a number of ways this year, be it their maddening tendency to surrender late goals, a 6-0 record in games played on Wednesday or the fact that the team’s leading scorer is a 17-year-old academy product.
But the oddest quirk of a difficult season might be this: the worst attack in MLS, the one that has scored just 12 times in 17 matches, has racked up 18 goals in 7 non-league games (three friendlies and four U.S. Open Cup contests). Four of those tallies came in Saturday’s 4-0 win over England Championship side Portsmouth FC.
Como parte de los esfuerzos comunitarios del D.C. United, jugadores del club rojinegro estarán haciendo presentaciones especiales en el área metropolitana esta semana. Brandon Barklage, Jordan Graye, Dejan Jakovic, Julius James, Stephen King, y Adam Cristman ayudarán a conducir una clínica de fútbol en Columbia, Maryland mañana martes 27 de julio.
El miércoles 28 de julio el portero Andrew Quinn se presentará en el Takoma Park Soccer Camp en Takoma Park Middle School. Información completa de las presentacines a continuación.

HOUSTON — Jaime Moreno was clearly surprised at being named to the All-Star roster last week, but the nod—in many ways a recognition of his 15-year MLS career—has given him a chance to reflect on his past.
However, after the 2010 All-Stars wrapped up their first practice together on a hot and humid morning in Houston, Moreno hinted, albeit obliquely, at his future in MLS.
HOUSTON.- Todo está listo para el tan esperado Juego de las Estrellas de la MLS.
