WASHINGTON (AP) -- Substitute Maicon Santos scored the winning goal in the second half in Eastern Conference-leading D.C. United's 3-2 over the New England Revolution on Saturday night.
Dejan Jakovic and Brandon McDonald scored in the first half for United (8-4-3). The Washington club is unbeaten in its last eight home matches, winning its last five.
Saer Sene and A.J. Soares scored early in the second half for the Revolution, 4-7-1 overall and 1-6-0 on the road.
Bill Hamid denied Kelen Rowe's 90th-minute header with a finger-tip save.
New England also suffered its only home loss to United 2-1 on April 14. Santos, who also scored in that contest in April and leads United with seven goals, struck 4 minutes after entering the game Saturday.
He also helped set it up, feeding Dwayne De Rosario on the left before racing into the box to reach the end of De Rosario's cross and drive it past goalkeeper Matt Reis in the 61st minute.
The goal reversed the game's momentum after the Revolution canceled out United's 2-0 halftime lead 5 minutes into the second half. Sene latched onto a rebound of Benny Feilhaber's long range effort and drove it past United's Bill Hamid from close range in the 48th minute.
In the 50th, Soares rose to head Chris Tierny's corner kick inside the left post.
United pulled ahead in the 15th minute when McDonald flicked a looping header of Branko Boskovic's long free kick into the top right corner. Jakovic doubled the lead in first-half stoppage time, reaching the ball in a goalmouth scramble.
The World Cup could be coming to Washington or Baltimore.
The official list of 49 stadiums that will be considered for inclusion in the North American bid for the 2026 World Cup included Fed Ex Field in Landover, MD, as well as M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
The United Bid Committee of the United States, Mexico and Canada officially started its process for cities to declare their interest to serve as Official Host Cities for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, by sending Requests for Information (RFIs) to 44 cities across the three nations.
After these cities, including Washington and Baltimore, declare their interest, the United Bid Committee reviews all of the submissions, and plans to have a short list put together by Sepember. The Bid Committee plans to have between 20 to 25 venues on the list to present to FIFA.
If chosen to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup, after going through FIFA’s determination process, it's expected that at least 12 locations could serve as Official Host Cities for the North American bid.
All stadiums are required to have at least 40,000 seats for group stage matches, and a capacity of at least 80,000 to be considered for the Opening Match and the Final.
Here's a full list of the cities and stadiums being considered.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Lamar Neagle scored on a penalty kick in the 61st minute and D.C. United beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 1-0 on Saturday to snap a three-game losing streak.
The penalty was awarded after defender Kendall Waston was called for hauling down Jose Ortiz in the box. The B.C. Place Stadium fans voiced their displeasure when replays showed Waston barely touched Ortiz.
Neagle sent the ball into the top corner for his sixth goal of the season. United improved to 4-6-2.
The Whitecaps (5-6-1) had a chance to tie it in extra time. Vancouver was awarded a penalty kick following a collision between United goalkeeper Bill Hamid and Vancouver's Brek Shea. Cristian Techera took the shot, but hit the post.
