Here are Colin's Keys to a 50th anniversary season road battle against the 'Caps first ever opponent in 1974, San Jose Earthquakes. 

Contain Espinoza

Cristian Espinoza had a fantastic season for San Jose last year with 13 goals and 13 assists.

He has pace and strength. 

We must be tight on him. Don't let him run at us.

Play at pace

San Jose have looked suspect at the back through two matches.

They have not always stayed with runners.

We need good movement. With pace going forward we will cause them problems.

Get Gauld going

Ryan Gauld is one of the best players in MLS.

He needs to be more involved than he was in the opening match.

We need to get him on the ball more.
