D.C. United Details
D.C. United does not have a Designated Player on its roster, but the club is still expected to contend for the MLS Cup. A solid 2016 campaign saw the team finish fourth in the Eastern Conference for the second consecutive season, and head coach Ben Olsen, a legendary former player for the Black-and-Red, will hope his squad has what it takes to improve upon that position in 2017.
While the roster may not feature high profile players, Bill Hamid is one of the MLS’s top goalkeepers. The defensive unit is led by captain and American international Steve Birnbaum, and he is joined in defense by MLS veterans Bobby Boswell and Sean Franklin. Brazilian defensive midfielder Marcelo Sarvas is a rock in the center of the park, and Ghanaian wingers Lloyd Sam and Patrick Nyarko provide pace out wide. Rookie Ian Harkes, winner of the 2016 Hermann Trophy – which is awarded to the best college player in the nation – should see plenty of playing time, as should young striker Patrick Mullins, a two-time Hermann Trophy winner himself. Luciano Acosta is D.C. United’s most creative player, and the diminutive attacking midfielder has experience at Argentine giants Boca Juniors. He will be providing assists for the aforementioned Mullins, along with French veteran Sebastien Le Toux and Lamar Neagle, the team’s leading goal scorer from a season ago. This could be D.C. United’s last season playing in RFK Stadium, as the soccer-specific Audi Field could be completed as early as next year.
