It’s a quiet(er) day here in soccer news, especially after D.C. United gave us three headlines in a day last week.
Taxi Fountas has continued showing his quality on the field. A fundamental difference maker, he scored D.C.’s lone goal on Saturday against Nashville SC.
Unfortunately, the goals scored against the Black-and-Red set Hany Mukhtar up for MLS Team of the Week. No D.C. United Players made the XI or the bench this week.
Congratulations to D.C. United Academy players for their win against Lamorinda SC! We wish you all the best in the quarterfinals!
