Charlie Davies scored two goals and had an assist on Saturday against the Trinidad and Tobago U-20 team, which may have been enough to convince DC United that he's worth signing. Steven Goff is reporting that DC United is now ready to move forward with the one-year loan from Ligue 1 side Sochaux, but that some issues remain unresolved.
On Saturday, Davies played just the second half and was paired with Chris Pontius at forward. He made the most of his time, though, assisting on Kurt Morsink's goal in the 68th minute and scoring a goal of his own off an assist from Pontius just a minute later. Davies got the brace in the 75th minute when he controlled the ball at the top of the penalty area, beat two centerback's and put his shot in the upper corner.
Davies has been training with DC United for almost two weeks. Initial reports suggested DC United already had a financial deal in place for Davies if he was deemed fit, but those reports are apparently not true as the sides are still hammering out the agreement. DC United could certainly use someone with Davies' skills, as they scored just 21 goals last year, the lowest season total in MLS history.
