MLS WEEK 7 PREVIEW

DC UNITED v KANSAS CITY WIZARDS

DC United is the most woeful in Major League Soccer. Win-less and pointless in MLS so far this season, the only thing that could make it worse for United is injuries. Oh, and United have a pile of injuries.

DC United couldn’t have anywhere to go but up and certainly the recent acquisitions of Stephen King and Luciano Emilio should help bolster the offense. Anyone that saw 17 year-old Andy Najar play in the Cup last week, knows he is for real and may just be the engine room of the future in the Capitol.

Fulham will be playing Athletico Madrid who eliminated Liverpool FC and thus ended the dreams of an all-English Final.
