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.
