Martinez Injured and DCU Notes

*DCU defender Gonzalo Martinez felt tightness in his hamstring at training yesterday, did not work out today and will be a game-time decision tomorrow. I would not count on him starting against Columbus, but we'll see.

*Ailing midfielder Ben Olsen is heading to Delaware today to be examined by a U.S. national team doctor. "They call him the guru," Olsen said. He and DCU trainer Brian Goodstein "are taking a road trip up I-95. Maybe a cup of joe at the Chesapeake House, a hot dog at Nathan's."

*Coach Tom Soehn, on the Pope (the big man, not the former defender) being in town: "I hope he comes to the game. We could use it."

*Soehn, on the team recovering from the 4-0 loss: "As professionals, any time you feel like you've disappointed your teammates or yourself, you are excited to get back out and prove what you are about. That tests the true character of a team -- how they respond from things like this. What I can sense so far is they are just hungry to get back out and prove to themselves that they are better."

*Reserve division match Friday at 10 a.m. at the DCU training grounds. Admission is free.

Just for the fun of it, Copa Libertadores highlights from Estudiantes (Veron, remember him?) vs. Cuenca:
