D.C. United, struggling recently in MLS play, will host a friendly on Saturday at RFK Stadium against Paris Saint-Germain and new striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
United have lost three of their past four contests, and is now in fourth place in the Eastern Conference, five points behind the first place New York Red Bulls. This recent malaise means DCU head man Ben Olsen will play his regular starters more than he would in other friendlies, when younger players often get more time and lineup combinations are tinkered with.
In addition to Ibrahimovic, Paris Saint-Germain also bought Brazilian defender Thiago Silva from AC Milan this summer, and signed Argentinian Ezequiel Lavezzi from Napoli and Marco Verrati from Pescara before beginning their American tour.
