Emilio Does It Again in CONCACAF Champions Cup Semis
Luciano Emilio who we have already hailed as the best foreign signing by an MLS club not named David Beckham scored on a stoppage time header to give DC United a hard fought 1-1 draw with Chivas in the home leg of CONCACAF Champions Cup. In the other match Houston defeated Pachuca 2-0 with a finally fit Brian Ching scoring a goal for the Dynamo. The second leg will be played at 8,000 feet so Houston may need that two goal edge to have any sort of chance of advancing.
