D.C. United announced today that midfielder/forward Dwayne De Rosario has been named MLS Player of the Month for May by the North American Soccer Reporters. During the month, De Rosario scored four goals, including a game-winner against his former club Toronto FC, while assisting on four others, including a game-winning assist against the New England Revolution. He currently leads the League in assists (8), and is fourth in the League in terms of shots (44).
Throughout May, De Rosario was a mainstay in D.C. United’s lineup, where he played 90 minutes in all but one game (81 minutes vs. Colorado on 5/16), leading the Black-and-Red to an impressive 4-0-2 record and propelling the club to first place in the Eastern Conference.
De Rosario is currently in camp with the Canadian Men’s National Team in preparation for the team’s friendly match against the U.S. Men’s National Team on June 3 at BMO Field in Toronto, and 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifying matches against Cuba in Havana on June 8 and Honduras in Toronto on June 12.
