1996

After two uneventful years in England, Jaime Moreno moved to MLS in August and became the final piece in Coach Bruce Arena's roster construction in United's inaugural season. He scored four minutes into his debut and ignited a 7-3-0 run to end the regular season, followed by five victories in six postseason matches, including an overtime win over Los Angeles in MLS Cup.

1997

Despite making just 20 regular season appearances because of Bolivian national team duty, Moreno had a league-high 16 goals, including seven in an early six-game stretch. He scored the first goal in MLS Cup against Colorado at sold-out RFK Stadium.

1998-99

With Moreno and compatriot Marco Etcheverry fueling the attack, United surged to a 47-17 regular season record over two years and rebounded from an upset loss to Chicago in the '98 final to defeat Los Angeles the following fall. Moreno accumulated 26 goals and 24 assists, plus five goals in the 1999 postseason.

2000

The only three-goal match of his career came in a 19-minute stretch of the second half during a 5-2 victory over Colorado at Mile High Stadium: a penalty kick in the 59th, a six-yard header on John Maessner's cross three minutes later and a leaping redirect inside the six-yard box on Etcheverry's service in the 78th.
