MLSSoccer.com gives FCD a B-plus for Disney tourney

By Mark Norris

 

MLSSoccer.com's Simon Borg graded all the MLS squads who participated in last week's Disney Pro Soccer Classic. Here's what he said about FCD:

FC DALLAS (2-1-1, 6 GF / 4 GA): David Ferreira continues to be the story this preseason. After 90 surprising minutes against BK Häcken, there was the setback of missing the final two matches of the tournament due to a sore Achilles.  

They became the FC Dallas of old with Ferreira in the lineup, but the new guys ain’t too shabby. Hernán Pertúz is a rock in the back, Blas Pérez is FCD’s best forward of the Schellas Hyndman era and Carlos Rodríguez adds quality on the left.

But the most intriguing aspect of the tournament for FCD is Brek Shea’s move to forward against Houston. It should have longer legs than the left back experiment of last year.

GRADE: B+
