WASHINGTON ? In the wake of last Saturday?s 1-1 draw against LA, the mood in D.C. United's locker room was mixed. The fact that they had managed to score a late goal in the 90th minute, stealing a point at the death after a flat offensive performance, was reason to be upbeat.
But coaches and players alike know that things must improve in future games if this team is to succeed on the field in 2011.
?Overall, I just thought we weren?t as sharp as we needed to be,? Ben Olsen said after the game. ?I thought the energy was there, but we just weren?t a good enough soccer team.?
