Matt Doyle & Dan Haiek from MLSsoccer.com broke down Saturday's FC Dallas game at DC United in their weekly Scouting Report:
By Mohammad Bushnaq
FC Dallas finished off their four home games in five weeks marathon with a 3-1-0 record. Now, FC Dallas travels to the nation's capital to take on a D.C. United team with eight points from six games, good enough for 4th place in the Eastern Conference. Last season, FC Dallas defeated D.C. United at Toyota Stadium 2-1 in their only matchup of the season.
WATCH: FCD vs DC - 2013
May 11, 2013 - FC Dallas 2 D.C. United 1: FC Dallas entered this mid-May matchup riding high, unbeaten in seven matches at home (eight matches overall). FC Dallas opened the scoring when Jackson finished a hard-shot past D.C. keeper Joe Willis in the 11th minute. D.C. found an equalizer before the half as Dwayne De Rosario beat Chris Seitz on a low shot after a quick restart to get his team back on level terms. It was the first goal FC Dallas had allowed in the first half all season. FC Dallas would not be denied the victory in front of the home crowd, though. In what seems to be a trend for FC Dallas teams, the Hoops struck on a set-piece in the 77th minute. Je-Vaughn Watson had a Michel corner go in off his chest for the lead, giving FC Dallas their 8th goal off set pieces two months in to the season. FC Dallas would hold on to extend their unbeaten streaks in front of 14,322 and remain in first place with 24 points in the Supporters Shield Race.
OK, this is pretty awesome.
Today SB Nation released an app called MLS 12th man that helps you choose your MLS team. Now we all know you're #DTID and bleed red & white but this is still good for a laugh.
Unfortunately, I got paired with the New York Red Bulls, but FCD was the 3rd closest match for me. Which team did you get?
