United acquire Brazilian Forward

Steve Goff is reporting that in a press conference at RFK tomorrow, DC United will introduce Brazilan forward Luciano Emilio. Emilio has been playing for Honduran club, Olimpia. Olimpia will be United first opponent in the CONCACAF Champions Cup, with the first leg taking place in Honduras on either February 20th or 22nd.

I remember watching Emilio in the UNCAF Championship match and I was impressed with his pace and quickness. He was causing all sorts of problems for the Puntarenas FC defense. At least now Boswell & Co. won't have to try and cover him, now they just have to support him.

This is a good development as it is the first step in filling the one area that United were the most deficient in. Hopefully Emilio will fit in with the club and not be a bust like Lucio was last season.
