Weekend video rewind: A look at the Galaxy’s next opponent, USWNT lose to England & more

*D.C. United, the Galaxy’s next opponent on Saturday, plays the Colorado Rapids in a game aired at 4 p.m. today on Galavision. D.C. United Assistant Coach Pat Onstad previews the game here:

*The U.S. women lost to England Saturday for the first time since 1988 just a few months before the World Cup begins. Torrance’s Shannon Boxx began the move that led to the U.S. goal. But the Abby Wambach goal drought continues. The result, though, was no fluke despite the U.S. domination of the second 45 minutes:

Next for the U.S.: Against Japan May 14 in Columbus, Ohio.

*UCLA’s Kelyn Rowe scored two goals as the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team swept by Panama Saturday into the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF U-20 Championship Wednesday against Guatemala. The prize for the winner of that game: a spot in the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Colombia.

UCLA’s Eder Arreola, a Southern California native, also went the full 90 in this one, as did Chivas USA’s Zarek Valentin.
