DC United’s 2012 Home Opener vs Sporting KC this Saturday March 10th

DC United kicks off their MLS season Saturday, March 10th at 7:30pm vs conference rivals Sporting KC.

Dwayne DeRosario returns to lead the team on the field as the team is increasingly optimistic about a successful campaign. With the signing of Albanian forward Hamdi Salihi as a Designated Player, the return of Chris Pontius and Branko Boskovic from injury, and the increased experience of Andy Najar the team, on paper, seems capable of creating many goal scoring opportunities from several positions.

The signing of Emiliano Dudar as a center back also should provide much needed depth in the position alongside Brandon McDonald and Dejan Jakovic. This should also allow for Perry Kitchen to move into a defensive center midfield position.

Bill Hamid returns in goal more confident given his offseason trainings with the US U23 and full National team, and training stint with EPL side West Brom.

Doubts remain about DC United’s outside back situation, however the arrival of Robbie Russell gives some veteran leadership to the right side, while several players, including Daniel Woolard are fighting for the left back spot.

Sporting KC returns many of its key players from last season in which they proved to be arguably the best team in the Eastern Conference over the course of the season.
