David Ferreira & Ricardo Villar should be in lineup vs Toronto FC

What FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman said Tuesday morning is music to the ears of FCD fans.

Barring any last minute changes or evaluations, players David Ferreira and Ricardo Villar should be in an FC Dallas uniform tomorrow night vs. Toronto FC.

“They’re back. They’ll be part of the 18,” Hyndman said after training Tuesday morning.

Hyndman wouldn’t elaborate on playing time for the two players, but he did offer thoughts on what he would look for from the pair.

For Ferreira, the 2010 MLS MVP who has had a long road back to the pitch, it’s about getting back into the flow of the game.

“Being away from the game as long as he has, it’s that sharpness and getting hit and getting knocked down and getting back up with that confidence,” Hyndman said.

For Villar, who last saw action against New England in the fifth match of the 2012 season, Hyndman is more measured.

“We’re hoping he can handle the demands of the game,” Hyndman said.
