Olsen: Gold Cup snub a "blow" to DC phenom Najar

WASHINGTON ? For Andy Najar, this June was supposed to be about stepping on the field and representing his native Honduras for the very first time in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

But a tricky series of events and a back-and-forth between D.C. United and the Honduran federation threw a wrench in the plans, before Honduras coach Luis Fernando Su�rez finally decided late last week not to call the midfielder into camp.

Najar was back on the training field Wednesday with D.C. United, and the youngster will spend the next month playing for his MLS club.

When Marc Burch failed a late fitness test back on May 4 against the Seattle Sounders, opportunity knocked for Woolard, who prior to that had managed just a single start in league play. The left back responded with three solid performances in a row and has helped solidify what had been a shaky defense.

SET PIECE CAUTION

Ahead of Sunday's match against the Portland Timbers (5:00 p.m. ET/Comcast SportsNet), Thursday's D.C. United training session included a large portion of time devoted to set pieces. The team worked on both defending and scoring from dead-ball plays.

"[Portland] is very good on set pieces," Assitant Coach Chad Ashton said following training. "It's no secret that [set pieces] have been one of our weaknesses, so we're going to have to do a good job and hopefully do a better job on the offensive side of [set plays] as well."
