DC United Succumb To Chivas

That's Chivas of Guadelajara. The game in question was the second leg of the Copa Sudamericana Round of 16. Too bad about the result, but D.C. held their own and lost by the narrowest of margins, with the away goal Chivas notched in the first leg last week proving the difference. It's definitely a good thing for MLS clubs to get tested against international competition like this. The more the better; Bring it on, I say. Hopefully we'll be competing in the Copa Libertadores soon. Either way, it seems clear that the only way MLS ever get any kind of respect on an international level is if they hold their own against the other top clubs in the Americas. Of which Chivas is definitely one. So consider this a step in the right direction.
