VANCOUVER British Columbia (AP) — Long Tan's first goal helped the Vancouver Whitecaps beat D.C. United 2-1 on Wednesday night.

Tan, the only Chinese-born player to play in the league, put the Whitecaps ahead 2-0 in the 47th minute as he headed in Alain Rochat's cross.
Camilo scored in the first minute for the Whitecaps while Brandon McDonald replied in the 58th for United.
