Rookie Graye making most of opportunity at DC

Injuries hand local defender starting role at right back
DC's Graye holds his own

On a wild
Wednesday night when no less than 40 players took the field at RFK Stadium, the
brief list of those who lasted the full 90 minutes of D.C. United’s exhibition
match against AC Milan is noteworthy. Its members: Clarence Seedorf, Alessandro
Nesta, Alexandre Pato, Christian Abbiati and the home team’s sole
representative, Jordan Graye.

Not bad
company for a rookie MLS defender widely assumed to be training fodder a few
months ago when United used their only pick of the 2010 SuperDraft to make him
the 55th overall selection.

D.C. beat Ronaldinho and AC Milan in wild shootout at RFK

Brazilian is the star, but United come out on top 3-2
DC edge Milan 3-2

The stars were out at RFK Stadium on Wednesday night at D.C. United hosted Italian giants AC Milan in an international friendly—and a spirited crowd of 30,367 spectators were treated to something that’s been almost as rare as a superclub’s visit this season: a United victory.

D.C. rode goals from Luciano Emilio, Chris Pontius and Danny Allsopp to a 3-2 win over the Rossoneri, though the muggy evening’s real highlights were the tricks and flicks of Brazilian idol Ronaldinho and his calcio mates.
