2016 Team of the Week - DL

Fabian Espindola and Alvaro Saborio must have felt like they were transported back to 2012 on Saturday afternoon.


The former Real Salt Lake teammates (2010-12), who combined to score 65 goals for RSL, each scored a brace against the Vancouver Whitecaps, leading D.C. United to a 4-0 win against the 'Caps.


Luciano Acosta also provided some punch for D.C., providing two assists for the home side.
