MLS MVP Luciano Emilio Could Land on D.C. Bench

With only one goal and one assist in seven games for D.C. United, Brazilian striker Luciano Emilio has been the disappointment of the 2008 MLS season. Emilio's poor start is one of the reasons why D.C. is 2-5-0 entering its game at Chivas USA Saturday night.

The Washington Post Steven Goff reports that D.C. United coach Tom Soehn might bench Emilio, the 2007 MLS MVP. "We are just in a situation where we have not been getting enough out of that position and it is time to give someone else a shot," Soehn said before departing for Carson.
 
Emilio is suffering from what Soehn described as a strained quadriceps but was scheduled to accompany the team on the trip. Emilio has gotten few chances and been off-target on chances he's gotten in the penalty area. "He just has to dedicate himself to the game," Soehn said. "He has got to apply himself more and work harder like everybody else in every other position."
