The FIFA International Break is upon us with the Boys in Red leading the league & are the only team thus far to have assured themselves a spot in the 2018 Audi MLS Playoffs. All they need to do is go 2-7 over the rest of the season to achive a new win total, it is pretty much assured they will do so. Sun. Sept. 16 they travel down to Audi Field, the new home of DC United, we are fully expecting to go there as well.
