Weekend Recap

So I went away for the weekend, a lot happened.

DC United went to Kansas City and took care of business, winning their 5th match of the season, 3-1. Jamie Moreno picked up his MLS career 98th and 99th goals in the match. For his efforts, Moreno was named MLS player of the Week today. United has a short week as they host the Columbus Crew at RFK this Wednesday night in an Eastern Conference match up. A win puts United level with FC Dallas in points with 21, and will put them ahead in the Supporters Shield race as they have a better goal differential than FC Dallas.

US National Team Send off Season Series.
The US National Squad finished off their World Cup prep with a 2-0 victory over Venezuela and a 1-0 victory over Latvia. Brian McBride cemented his starting forward spot with his play against Latvia, scoring the game winner. Bobby Convey showed how he was such an invaluable part of Reading FC's promotion to the EPL, as he proved how much a threat on the left wing he can be with his passes. Now the US team heads over to Hamburg to get settled for their first match against the Czech Republic. The Czechs played Costa Rica today and won 1-0 with an 82nd minute goal.
