Branko Boskovic's first goal of the season lifted D.C. United to a 1-0 victory over Chivas USA on Sunday night.
For the vast majority of Branko Boskovic's tenure with D.C. United, the highly paid veteran's fitness has lingered as a concern.
As Dwayne De Rosario hobbled onto the RFK Stadium pitch, attired in street clothes during a pregame ceremony honoring his 100th MLS goal, reality sunk in. If D.C. United are going to emerge from the stretch run with a playoff bid, they’ll have to do it without their captain and catalyst.
For a moment Sunday, all was right in D.C. United's world. Then, as coach Ben Olsen put it, the "Geiger show" took over — as in referee Mark Geiger.
Since D.C. United kicked off its 2012 campaign with a revamped roster, one key personnel question has lingered over the club: Is Branko Boskovic in for the long haul or will the pricey midfielder be making an early exit?
D.C. United had just taken a pair of punches to the gut. Up 2-0 at halftime against the New England Revolution, they watched that lead evaporate in the opening minutes of the second stanza. But they had an answer.
D.C. United coach Ben Olsen noted this week how he was impressed with the effort of speedy midfielder Lewis Neal and wanted the newcomer from England to make more crosses from the left flank.
Coach Ben Olsen often noted this past offseason that D.C. United's restructured roster, with substantially more depth and balance than in years past, sure looked good on paper. But in Saturday's 2-1 win at the New England Revolution, those qualities paid dividends where it matters most - on the field.
D.C. United midfielder Branko Boskovic will be sidelined for about six months following surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
"Maybe I look like this, like I'm tired, I'm not ready," said Boskovic, who has made 20 appearances this season.
After kicking some water bottles Saturday en route to the bench, Boskovic on Tuesday vented about his playing time this season, during which he has made it past the 75th minute in just one of his 10 starts.
