DC United Mid-Fielder, Thabiso "Boyzzz" Khumalo, joined the Street Soccer DC practice this week. Generous with his time, Boyzzz spent time talking with the players, answering questions and even offered to come back for a visit and support their efforts as the work toward the SSUSA Cup.

Boyzz was born and raised in Soweto, South Africa, and in fact is still connected to home through his foundation that aims to offer scholarship for South African youth to study in the United States.
Boyzzz was signed by D.C. United on 9/12 and made his club debut on 9/13 in 2-2 draw with FC Dallas. His first League goal came in United's 5-2 loss to the LA Galaxy on 10/20. He finished the season with seven League appearances (six starts) and notched a goal and an assist in 468 minutes on the field. He also played in all six CONCACAF Champions League games (four starts).
Street Soccer DC thanks DC United and Boyzzz, and Linh Le for coming out to visit the team.
