D.C. United overcome early Bill Hamid injury in frenetic 4-2 win at Columbus Crew

A wild game that shows the immediate potential of Hernan Losada’s system. The first goal was especially ruthless, with Yordy Reyna and Ola Kamara pressing high to force the turnover, and then Kamara slotting it home. At the halfway point of the season, D.C. United is above the red line and in good position going forward.

As long as these injuries stop piling up. Be okey, Bill.
