D.C. United signs Brazilian striker Luciano Emilio

D.C. United announced Tuesday the signing of Brazilian forward Luciano Emilio, one of the most prolific goal scorers in the Honduran First Division during the past five years. The 28-year-old joins United from Honduras side CD Olimpia and will occupy a Senior International slot on United's roster. Per League policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"We are very pleased that Luciano is officially part of D.C. United," said United Technical Director Dave Kasper. "He is a strong target striker and an accomplished goal scorer who has been part of several championship teams. We look forward to his future contributions to our club."

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound forward signed for a second stint with Olimpia midway through 2005 and led the Lions to the 2005 Apertura crown. He won his fourth scoring title with 13 goals and helped Olimpia capture the championship in the 2006 Clausura tournament.

For his career, Emilio tallied 91 goals in the Honduran league, 45 with Real EspaƱa and 46 with Olimpia. He was also the recipient of the Golden Boot of the 2006 UNCAF tournament, the Central American clubs cup competition, tallying eight goals in seven games for Olimpia.
