[MLS 2013 COUNTDOWN] The Colorado Rapids' injury problems in midfield mounted as midfielder Jaime Castrillon, one of MLS's top Colombian imports of 2012, will require knee surgery and be out indefinitely. The loss of Castrillon, the club's leading scorer with with eight goals in 2012, follows that of Argentine playmaker Martin Rivero, who broke his foot in practice last week.

The injuries will put the spotlight on 22-year-old Chilean Kevin Harbottle, who was was signed last month from Universidad Catolica and began practicing with the Rapids this week.

MLS PRESEASON RESULTS:
Thursday, Feb. 7
New York 3(Henry, Moreno, Domingues)Malmo FF 2(Friberg, Rexhepi)

D.C. UNITED.Among the trialists still with D.C. United for the next leg of preseason training are Danish left back Jan Frederikson, who most recently played in Poland, and Ugandan defender Henry Kalungi, who played three seasons for the USL Richmond Kickers before moving to the NASL Carolina RailHawks on loan in 2012.

MONTREAL.The Impact acquired Argentine forward Andres Romero on loan from Brazilian club Tombense FC for the 2013 MLS season. Romero, 23, spent the 2012 season with Criciuma (Serie B) and Capibaribe (Serie A). "We've been talking about looking for an attacking player, a forward/winger, that is versatile and Romero fits that role," said Impact sporting director Nick De Santis in a statement. "He's played at a very high level in Argentina and Brazil. He's at a good age and now it's up to him to acclimatize to a new style of soccer."

NEW ENGLAND.The Revs find themselves snowed in -- or rather stuck at home until Monday because of the impending blizzard expected to hit New England. Plans to leave for Arizona and the Desert Diamond Cup in Tucson have been pushed back from Saturday to Monday. Jerry Bengtson, whose late goal lifted Honduras to a 2-1 win over the United States on Wednesday, was expected to arrive ahead of the storm on Friday. New England opens tournament play Wednesday against Seattle.

NEW YORK. The Red Bulls rallied from 1-0 and 2-1 down to beat Swedish club Malmo FF, 3-2, on Thursday. New York has MLS's smallest roster and desperately in need of adding bench strength. Spanish-born winger Ruben Izquierdo, Cameroon U-20 Marius Obekop and 20-year-old Brazilian-Austrian Rafhael Domingues all played against Malmo and contributed to the late rally. Izquierdo, who has played in England, set up homegrown signing Amando Moreno for the tying goal in the 86th minute, and Domingues, an Austrian U-18, scored on a feed from Obekop two minutes later.
