On the match as a whole:
It didn't make up for losing the 2013 U.S. Open Cup final, but Real Salt Lake's win over D.C. United on Saturday night sure helped in the standings.
The Claret-and-Cobalt's 3-0 win lifted them into first place in the Western Conference and into a tie for first place in the Supporters' Shield race — pending the outcome of a couple of games on Sunday.
The toughness and grit shown by D.C. United may have been overshadowed by the result in last weekend’s 1-0 loss at Houston. But it is a building block ahead of a visit to Real Salt Lake that will feature key differences in style, personnel and climate.
D.C. United has announced a partnership with Sunderland AFC of the Barclays Premier League, an agreement that will result in shared expertise, benefit and promotion for each club.
Last night, the MLS All-Stars topped Bundesliga superpower Bayern Munich 2-1. Down 1-0 going into halftime, All-Star Head Coach Caleb Porter swapped the starting eleven for a new lineup; D.C. United’s Bobby Boswell, Bill Hamid and Sean Franklin entered the match.
