DC starts Copa Sudamerica quest tomorrow
I'm excited about this. Another chance to make a statement about American soccer. One thing is for sure though, United must go out and attack U. Catolica at home tomorrow. MLS teams have not done well outside of this country. By my count, the league is 7-21-1 in International competition away from home, against teams from other countries (does not include DC's win over Vasco in Florida). So a win by multiple goals in the only option.
Overall, I think our league (and national team) is probably stronger than Chile's, so we need to show them who's boss. I also think having some South American players will help DC. They should advance, although the next round against a Argentine/Brazilian team will be hard to tackle.
