Dwayne De Rosario Named MLS Player Of The Month

D.C. United announced Thursday that Dwayne De Rosario has been named MLS Player of the Month for May by the North American Soccer Reporters organization.

The announcement comes just as the club prepares for life without the Canadian international, who has reported to his national team's camp in preparation for a friendly against the United States June 3 and World Cup qualifiers against Cuba and Honduras on June 8 and 12, respectively.

Fortunately for United, the only game that falls within that timeframe is a U.S. Open Cup match against the Philadelphia Union June 5. It is not clear whether De Rosario will be held out of the league match between the teams scheduled for June 16.

During May, De Rosario scored four goals and assisted on four others as United went 4-2 in their six matches. That stretch includes their present three-match winning streak in MLS (four-match winning streak in all competitions) and has resulted in United sitting in first place atop MLS' Eastern Conference.
