D.C. United has selected four finalists for this year's Sueno, the soccer equivalent of Pop Idol. The four Washington, D.C. area standouts are forwards Cesar Bazan and Max Ferdinand, defender Manfredis Hernandez and goalkeeper Oussana Maukran. The players were selected by D.C. United scouts as the local winners of Sueño MLS 2009 - built by The Home Depot, the nationally-televised player search.

The four move on to the "Final Event" in Los Angeles April 9-12.
