WASHINGTON ? Throughout D.C. United's 2-1 loss in a friendly to Ajax on Sunday, defender Brandon Barklage could hardly forget about the past.
Almost exactly a year ago, on May 26, Barklage played in a friendly against AC Milan and tore his ACL for the second year in a row. The injury ended his season.
?It was on my mind the entire time [against Ajax] because it?s a game that doesn?t mean anything, and I got injured in it last year,? Barklage told MLSsoccer.com.
