It's been a big offseason for Oscar Pareja, Fernando Clavijo and FC Dallas adding names like Hendry Thomas and Andres Escobar to the mix, but just when things seemed to be done they pulled an ace out of their sleeve adding 22-year-old Uruguayan forward David Texeira as a young DP from FC Groningen of the Dutch Eredivisie.

The forward has scored 14 goals in the Eredivisie over the last two years and joins what's looking to be an incredibly young and potent FCD attack.

Here's the always-anticipated highlight video:

With the starters from yesterday’s 5-1 win over South Florida given the day off, the rest of the team was matched up against the U-18 side from the IMG Academy for a last-minute scrimmage on Thursday morning.

Two goals from Danny Garcia plus strikes from Jonathan Top, Cobi Span and academy standout Coy Craft sealed a 5-0 win for FC Dallas.

Notes:

-Thursday saw the preseason debuts of Hendry Thomas, who played the second half, as well as Peter Luccin who saw action in the final 10 minutes of the game.

-We’re told Danny Garcia’s second goal was quite the stunner. “A left-footed, first-touch strike that gave the 'keeper no chance on its way to the far side-netting.”

-Also, Garcia played 80 minutes in central midfield, a position that’s been hinted at by both Pareja and Clavijo as one that Garcia could find success in.

-FCD is back in action on Saturday when they take on the NASL’s Fort Lauderdale Strikers at 6:00PM Central time in Bradenton.
