FC Dallas may not be bringing home the greatest trophy in the history of mankind after dropping a 1-0 result to D.C. United in the championship of the ATX Pro Challenge on Sunday, but the club will have its chance at sweet, sweet vengeance this Friday when FCD hosts United at Toyota Stadium.

On top of that, Friday night's game is also the first and only chance for FC Dallas fans to see the team in preseason action at home. Sure, plenty of you made the trip to Austin for last weekend's tournament, but there's nothing like cheering on your club from the comfy confines of Toyota Stadium.

There are two new kids on the block in Major League Soccer for the 2015 season. While Orlando City won’t be visiting Toyota Stadium this year, New York City FC will be coming to Frisco on September 12 in our final Premier Match of the schedule.

Although this match is eight months away, there are still plenty of storylines to get excited about.

It marks the return of FC Dallas’ all-time leader in goals, assists and games played in NYCFC head coach Jason Kreis. This is also the first time he’ll face off against fellow FCD franchise icon Oscar Pareja since Oscar returned to Toyota Stadium to take the reins of FC Dallas last year.

This match could also be the return of two men who at one point donned the captain’s armband for FC Dallas. Andrew Jacobson patrolled the Dallas midfield for more than three years before joining the new New York club via trade last July, while imposing center back George John was picked up by NYC in December’s Expansion Draft after making a name for himself over his six-year career with FCD.

In addition to being the first chance to see a new club in-person, September 12 will also be FC Dallas fans’ first chance to boo NYCFC stars like up-and-coming U.S. International Mix Diskerud, former FIFA World Cup champion David Villa and (theoretically) English International and Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.

If there are this many reasons to come to this match now, think about how much you’ll want to be here in eight months!

As you probably already know, FC Dallas captain Matt Hedges and reigning AT&T MLS Rookie of the Year Tesho Akindele are currently in training camp with the U.S. Men's National Team. Before heading to Santiago, Chile next week for the USMNT's first friendly of the year, the boys have been training in Carson, CA at the StubHub Center, home of the LA Galaxy.

Our friends at the Galaxy were kind enough to snap some training photos and send them our way this week. So we picked out EVERY photo featuring Matt or Tesho (whether they were the focus of the picture or not) to share with you. ENJOY!

FC Dallas played Seattle Sounders FC to a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the Western Conference Semifinals at Toyota Stadium Sunday night. Goalkeeper Raul Fernandez made seven saves in the match and FC Dallas took the lead from the penalty spot in the first half. Andres Escobar was taken down in the penalty box by Seattle midfielder Marco Pappa and Michel converted the PK in the 34th minute.

First Half Highlights

Seattle managed to tie things up midway through the second half when Osvaldo Alonso just barely got his head to a free kick by Pappa in the 64th minute and redirected it past Fernandez. Fabian Castillo nearly got the go-ahead goal late on if not for an exceptional save by Stefan Frei to keep things level.
