D.C. United Vs. Toronto FC: Dwayne De Rosario's Double Has United Up 2-0 At Half

Dwayne De Rosario has scored twice against his former club as D.C. United leads Toronto FC, 2-0 at halftime at RFK Stadium.

The Canadian international put the home side in front just 57 seconds into the match after he headed home a Branko Boskovic free kick from close range. The goal was the fourth-fastest in D.C. United's history.

De Rosario doubled United's advantage in the 43rd minute, when he somehow went unnoticed by the entire Toronto defense and redirected a cross from Chris Korb into the net from close range.

But it wasn't all good news for United in the first half, as Danny Cruz left with an apparent hamstring injury. He was replaced by Dejan Jakovic, which prompted Andy Najar to move to right midfield, Korb to right back, and Woolard to left back.
