Before Wednesday's big game between FCD and Aston Villa, FC Dallas supporters faced off against Aston Villa supporters in a friendly soccer game in the blistering heat out on the Toyota Soccer Center complex. The supporters from both sides came out in full force as there were at least 20 players on each side. Aston Villa drew fans from all over the country, even some from their home country of England. One supporter, Paul Limpitlaw, is originally from Birmingham, England where the club is located, he now lives in Dallas and is very happy that the club is here to visit.
"These are great facilities here at FC Dallas and when I found out Aston Villa was coming to Dallas it was a dream come true for me because I travel over there to watch the games so this is brilliant for them to be here," Limpitlaw said.
The international supporters team had a special and talented player on their side, Lee Hendrie (pictured above in the middle), who used to play for Aston Villa and even had a few caps for the English National Team but is now retired. Hendrie is traveling with the team as a team ambassador and he had nothing but great things to say about the support here in Dallas.
"It's fantastic for the fans to get involved and all the guys are brilliant and the support has been fantastic so I've enjoyed it," said Hendrie.
One FC Dallas supporter, Jay Neal a Dallas Beer Guardian thought their team did a good job shutting the ex-player down and keeping him to only a few goals. He was pleased with the way the game turned out and how much fun everyone had.
"It was a blast, especially with an international team like this and everybody comes out and shakes hands at the end and had a good time," Neal said.
The game ended in a 7 to 7 tie so it was an entertaining match not only to watch but for the players to play in as well.
