A football team (or soccer, whatever floats your boat) that has dominated MLS this 2006 season. With a record of 15-5-10, United has clinched the 2006 Supporters Shield. This goes to the MLS team with the best record and gives them a place in the CONCACAF Champion's Cup. On top of this, United has won the Atlantic Cup, was the first team to guarantee a playoff berth, and sent seven players to the MLS All-Star game (three in the Starting XI), where they proceeded to beat English powerhouse Chelsea FC. DC United also played Spanish giant Real Madrid, a game which ended in an impressive tie, resulting from a spectacular passing sequence involving Freddy Adu, Josh Gros, Christian Gomez, and Jaime Moreno, with Alecko Eskandarian whipping it in past Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
