FRISCO - The FC Dallas U-16s won their second straight group stage game at the 2015 Generation adidas Cup defeating fellow MLS side Real Salt Lake 1-0 on Monday afternoon at the Toyota Soccer Center.

FC Dallas opened the match strong with midfielder Weston McKinnie hitting the post on a free kick in the 10th minute. That was the best chance of the half as the teams went into the break goalless. 

Second half substitute Toshiki Yasuda would prove to have the decisive goal in the match chipping the goalkeeper from just outside the box after receiving a feed from McKinnie in the 52nd minute. 

The FC Dallas U-16 defense which has yet to allow a goal in two tournament games held strong to earn the 1-0 victory that has FCD at the top of the group with one game left.

FCD will play Pumas from Liga MX on Wednesday afternoon at 3:00PM with a win or draw assuring passage through to the semifinals on Thursday night.

DALLAS - The FC Dallas U-18s were unable to build on Sunday's solid result against Corinthians losing 4-1 to Liga MX side CF Monterrey on Monday at Richland College, eliminating them from semifinal contention in the Gordon Jago Super Group at Dr Pepper Dallas Cup XXXVI.

Things got off to a rough start for the U-18s as a shot taken from the right side of the box snuck through everyone in the 9th minute giving Monterrey a 1-0 lead. FCD battled back, however, and pulled level with their first goal of the tournament. Christian Ramirez showed great tenacity to stick with a rebounded shot and slot it home to tie the score 1-1 in the 34th minute.

Just before halftime, Monterrey struck back, however, as a towering header in the 42nd minute gave the Mexican side the lead and a defensive error doubled Monterrey's lead just a minute later making the score 3-1 at halftime.

Monterrey would find another goal early in the second half to round out the scoring in a disappointing 4-1 result for the FC Dallas U-18s.

They'll have a chance to get a win on Wednesday against the Bundesliga's TSG Hoffenheim at 12:00PM at Richland College in their final group stage game. A win would leave FCD with four points, a point ahead of last season's Super Group finish.

The FC Dallas Academy is unquestionably among the top in American soccer having signed more Homegrown players than any other team and played more Homegrown minutes than any other team in 2014, but one thing the Academy hasn't produced is a full first team international player. That could all change this week as Moises Hernandez has been called in to the Guatemala National Team squad for friendlies against Canada and El Salvador. 

It's another milestone that is huge for both Hernandez and his club, FC Dallas.

"It’s another big step for him and a step that I hope he can take the best way possible to get more mature," said head coach Oscar Pareja. "To understand the responsibilities with his club, himself, his family and now with his country."

Hernandez has taken a winding road to breaking through with the FCD first team having had loan stints in both Guatemala and Costa Rica, but over the last 12 months the 23-year-old has blossomed into a key player for Pareja's side playing every minute of the first three games of 2015 for a Dallas side that is 3-0-0 with just one goal allowed. 

"I think the club should be very proud to have a product of the academy exposed to the national team level and not just the USA but abroad," said Pareja. "That pride should be carried by the whole club."

Hernandez and Guatemala will play Canada in Fort Lauderdale at 3:30PM on Friday before playing El Salvador at the StubHub Center in Carson, CA on March 31. 

FULL LIST OF INTERNATIONAL MATCHES FOR FC DALLAS PLAYERS

Kyle Bekker - Canada

Kyle Bekker and the Canadian National Team will be the aforementioned Guatemala National Team on Friday afternoon in Fort Lauderale and then will play Puerto Rico on March 30th at 5:30 in Puerto Rico.

Atiba Harris - St. Kitts & Nevis

Amazingly, Harris is a part of some of the first games in 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifying this week as St. Kitts & Nevis battle against the Turks & Caicos Islands in the first round of qualifying. 

St. Kitts & Nevis rolled in the first leg on Tuesday scoring a 6-2 win in Basseterre. Atiba scored the first goal of the match in the 18th minute and his side will contest the second leg on March 26th. The winner of the two-leg series will face El Salvador in another two-leg series this summer.

Blas Perez - Panama

Blas Perez and Panama face Trinidad & Tobago on March 27th in the Carribean island before battling CONCACAF rival Costa Rica in Panama City on March 31.

Je-Vaughn Watson - Jamaica

Je-Vaughn Watson and Jamaica begin final preparations for the 2015 Copa America with a pair of friendlies in Montego Bay vs Venezuela and Cuba. The Reggae Boyz will battle Venezuela on Friday night and then face Cuba on Monday, both at the Montego Bay Sports Complex.

Dr Pepper Dallas Cup has announced four more teams for the prestigious Gordon Jago Super Group at Dr Pepper Dallas Cup XXXVI and for the fifth time in six years, the FC Dallas U-18 Academy has been invited to the Super Group. 

The FC Dallas U-18s, who just returned from the Copa Chivas where they went 0-1-2 in a group against Chivas Guadalajara & Atlas of Liga MX plus Japan's Urawa Red Diamonds, are currently 7-4-2 in the US Soccer Development Academy U-18 Frontier Division. Many U-18 players have been training with the FC Dallas first team through their MLS preseason schedule, and will head into Dallas Cup XXXVI with plenty of previous experience in the tournament. 

"I think it’s good for the U-18’s," said head coach Francisco Molina. "It gives them something to look forward to. Right now in the standings we’re not doing great, there’s no excuses, but it’s an extra motivation for the boys to know that they’re going to be in the Super Group and represent the club and the Academy well."

Last year, FCD won one of three Gordon Jago Super Group matches in a tough group with Fulham FC, Coritiba and Brommapojkarna, and has achieved the semifinals of the Super Group once in four previous appearances. 

"They are probably a half a step ahead of us just because of the culture," said Molina about playing international opponents. "We’re working very hard to get there, but they’re still a half a step ahead but I think the boys will be motivated and well prepared to represent the club."

FC Dallas joins Real Salt Lake and the LA Galaxy as MLS academies in the Super Group with international sides Everton FC(England), Valencia CF(Spain), Corinthians(Brazil), Coritiba(Brazil), Tigres(Mexico) and River Plate(Argentina) all confirmed as Gordon Jago Super Group participants.

Dr Pepper Dallas Cup XXXVI begins on March 29th and runs through April 5th. Stay tuned to FCDallas.com for full coverage of the annual international tournament.

The FC Dallas U-16s traveled to Houston last weekend for the final round of qualifying in the 2014-2015 Generation adidas Cup with matches against the Colorado Rapids, Chicago Fire and Sporting KC to decide who would advance to the International Division Championship bracket of the annual tournament. 

FC Dallas won all three matches, defeating the Colorado Rapids 3-1 behind goals from Gio Montesdeoca, Eddie Munjoma, Weston McKinnie and an own goal.

They followed that up with a 1-0 win over Chicago Fire on Saturday through a Brandon Terwege goal that clinched qualification into the International Division and then defeated Sporting KC 1-0 through another Montesdeoca on Monday in very difficult weather conditions to clinch the #1 seed in the group.

Since the GA Cup is a U-17 tournament, the FC Dallas team is a combination of U-16 & U-18 players, and they went 4-0-1 in qualifying matches allowing just two goals in the five games. They will play for the GA Cup Championship right here at the Toyota Soccer Center in early April. 

FC Dallas U-15's & U-13's sweep Houston Dynamo 

The FCD U-15 & U-13 teams were also in Houston this weekend for TPAL league play against the Dynamo.
