MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] D.C. United has won once in nine MLS games but for one evening it was again the toast of the RFK faithful. A crowd of 30,367 fans watched D.C. beat legendary Italian team AC Milan, 3-2, on goals by Luciano Emilio, Chris Pontius and Danny Allsopp. But the win came at a cost ...

Midfielder Brandon Barklage suffered a serious  knee injury and had to be stretchered off. D.C. had no more reserves and had to play the last 25 minutes with 10 men.

The three goals D.C. scored were one less than it has scored this season in MLS play.

Bill Hamid, D.C. United's teenage keeper, held off a Milan team featuring Brazilian stars Ronaldinho and Alexandre Pato as the MLS team raced out to a 2-0 lead at the half.

D.C. went up 3-0 before Massimo Oddo scored twice for Milan in the second half after Troy Perkins replaced Hamid in goal.
