D.C. United to host Milan in May 26 exhibition

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Major League Soccer's D.C. United will host Italy's AC Milan in an exhibition match May 26 at RFK Stadium.

It will be the clubs' first match against each other. D.C. United president Kevin Payne said Monday the game will be "a great test for our players.''

He also said D.C. United could add games against "two other major European clubs.'' Because the game is less than three weeks before the World Cup, AC Milan won't have any of its stars who will be with national teams.
