As the week comes to a close, some of our favorite D.C. United players have rejoined their national teams for a slate of exciting matches. We can definitely do with the distraction and some levity right now, so bring it on!
Victor Pálsson has reunited with Iceland’s national team and seems to be having a wonderful time. Iceland bested Venezuela in yesterday’s friendly, winning 1-0. Ísak Bergmann Jóhannesson scored the game-winner in the 87’ by converting a penalty.

This season’s final home matches are upon us. It’s hard to believe, right?
D.C. United won’t be back home until October 9, when they close out the season against FC Cincinnati at 2:30 pm ET. Will there be a Rooney - Acosta reunion? We can only dream.
FIFA 23 is out next week, with Ted Lasso and AFC Richmond included. Check out the game trailer below for a cameo from D.C. United manager Wayne Rooney.
