Both FC Dallas players on loan to the NASL's Fort Lauderdale Strikers saw action this weekend as forward Bradlee Baladez started his first game for the club going 73 minutes while Richard Sanchez started in goal playing all 90 minutes for the third time in a row. While Baladez didn't find the scoresheet in the 2-1 Strikers victory at San Antonio Scorpions, the forward drew some positive reviews on Twitter while Sanchez earned his first win in goal for the NASL side that is currently 1-2-0 on the year.
Over in Sweden, Bobby Warshaw did not play in AF Angelholm's 2-1 loss to GAIS. Warshaw could make his debut this week with two games coming up, a Swedish Cup match vs Skovde AIK on Wednesday and a league match vs Jonkopings Sodra on Saturday.

As we prepare for some marquee international friendlies this afternoon, headlined by the United States trip to Sarajevo to face Bosnia-Herzegovina, Raul Fernandez and Peru faced South Korea in Suwon overnight playing the Asian side to a 0-0 draw.
According to reports from the match, FCD goalkeeper Raul Fernandez came up huge for the Peruvians making some big saves in the shutout. This report from El Comercio said Fernandez was Peru's man of the match and has video of an incredible save by Fernandez.
Raul is expected to fly directly to Portland to meet up with FCD in plenty of time for Saturday's match against the Timbers and as the evidence shows, he's in fine form.
OK, this is pretty awesome.
