Midday Kickaround

*Local organizers are close to finalizing a May 30 friendly between El Salvador and Guatemala at Estadio RFK. Both teams are preparing for the second round of World Cup qualifying in June: El Salvador vs. Panama and Guatemala vs. St. Lucia. The Salvadorans drew more than 22,000 at RFK last month for a WC qualifier against Anguilla.

*George Mason University's soccer hall of fame inductees are midfielder Joseph Addo (Ghana 1996 Olympic team, MLS), defender Doug Bradley (son of former Patriots coach Gordon Bradley, a current member) and ex-coach Richard Broad (1976-84). They will join, among others, Gordon Bradley, Chicago Fire Coach Denis Hamlett and veteran MLS defender Ritchie Kotschau.

*DCU midfielder Ben Olsen will see another specialist next week, this one in North Carolina, to examine his ailing left ankle.

*United officials are hopeful Liberian forward Francis Doe, who has agreed to a senior roster deal with the club, will receive his work visa in time for next week's match at Colorado.

*Devon McTavish (foot), Gonzalo Peralta (knee) and Domenic Mediate (hamstring) sat out today's training session.

[update]

*DCU was approached about a friendly with Boca Juniors this summer, but could not find a date that would work for both clubs.
