Bill Hamid practices for the second straight week as his 2016 debut for D.C. United looms

The 2014 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year talked to Black and Red United as he gets closer to making his 2016 debut The news in January was not promising. Bill Hamid, D.C.

The timetable was unclear at first, but eventually the worst was confirmed: Hamid was out for 4 to 6 months, meaning that the USMNT hopeful would miss a significant portion of the MLS season, and in all likelihood the Copa America...

D.C. United closing in on full fitness ahead of New York Red Bulls clash

Bill Hamid has returned to practice ahead of Friday's battle with the Black-and-Red's oldest rival It has been a long four months since D.C.
