Cristhyan Najar Scores For D.C. United Vs. New York Red Bulls In Reserve League

New, comments

The DC United reserve squad remained undefeated on the season by drawing the New York Red Bulls 1-1 on the road earlier today. Who scored for D.C.? None other than Christhyan Najar, the brother of our own Andy Najar, and a member of United's U-15 Academy team.

Wait what? No, not U-18. Not U-16. U-15.

So maybe by the time United sells Andy to a European team for multiple millions, his little brother can just take his place on the right wing.

Najar wasn't the only young player to contribute. A United U-23 player with the unpronounceable name of Seth C'deBaca also turned in a strong performance. Academy players Bradley Vorv, Patrick Foss, and Jannik Eckenrode also suited up for United.

In other good news, Devon McTavish played a full 90 minutes.

I've always been a big fan of the reserve league. Not only because it provides valuable professional minutes for young developing players who wouldn't find them elsewhere, but also because its a great atmosphere for fans. And also because you wind up with really cool stuff like this:
