Transitioning to a new team in a new country is no easy task. Based off the electric playmaking ability midfielder Luciano Acosta has brought to D.C. United in his first season with the team, you’d think the 21-year-old had been playing with this attacking group for years. An offseason signing from Argentina power Boca Juniors, Acosta looks to further add to his already impressive highlight reel when D.C. United hosts New York City FC in MLS Soccer Sunday action at RFK Stadium on May 8 (7:30 p.m. ET, FS1/FOX Deportes).
The young midfielder arrived to D.C. via loan in the offseason but has already shown how dangerous he can be in the attack with his lightning quick dribbling skills. Despite the difficult transition, Acosta has excelled on the field and already has D.C. United fans clamoring to make the exhilarating player a permanent signing for the squad.
