So much is already going right at D.C. United in April, and now Dwayne De Rosario is on one of his signature runs.
United’s swashbuckling scorer-playmaker always has the goods. Sometimes, however, he packs extras supplies.
In these extended moments, “De Ro” deserves special attention from everyone. In the stands, for instance, I would advise that everyone put down the popcorn and soda pop whenever he finds the ball inside opposition half.
Actually, check that. One of his special moments Saturday from RFK Stadium actually started inside his own half.
Greater match analysis of the 3-2 victory is here, posted last night by Richard Farley.
Meanwhile, watch the highlights from yesterday’s win over Houston at RFK, where De Rosario scored his first goal of 2012, helped arrange another by drawing a big crowd before pushing the ball wide for an uncontested service and generally made people stand up and applaud.
Oh, and watch his amazing run in the 82nd minute. It didn’t result in a goal, but it’s a great demonstration of the sort of dazzling moment he’s capable of manufacturing at any moment – and especially when he gets into the groove.
