As if his olimpico in Seattle last year or his pinpoint free kick just seconds after coming onto the field in Kansas City last Saturday didn't prove it, Michel decided to practice a little bit extra after training on Tuesday and prove once again that he is not human. Watch and enjoy. (And if you don't follow us on Instagram, go ahead and do that)

Here are the best pictures from FCD's 1-1 draw at Sporting KC on Saturday night

18 March 10:13 am

A little late on this news, but we're now less than a month away from Dallas Cup and the FC Dallas U18's are back in the Gordon Jago Super Group for 2014. Having been placed in a group with 2013 Super Group champions Fulham FC, Brazilian powerhouse Coritiba and 2013 non-Super Group champions IF Brommapojkarna from Sweden, they've certainly got a tough group that will be a great test for Luchi Gonzalez's men.

To add a little extra spice to things, FC Dallas will open the tournament stadium games at the historic Cotton Bowl as they'll battle Fulham FC at 12:30PM on Sunday, April 13 in the first Cotton Bowl game of the week.

FCD could potentially play more games at the Cotton Bowl depending on if their game gets flexed to the Wednesday night games or if they make the semifinals/finals of the tournament.

In all, there will be nearly a dozen FC Dallas affiliated teams in Dallas Cup XXXV with the full schedule coming out soon.

Gordon Jago Super Group:

Group A: FC Dallas(USA), Fulham FC(ENG), IF Brommapojkarna(SWE), Coritiba FC(BRA)

Group B: Anderlecht(BEL), Fluminense(BRA), CD Guadalajara(MEX), LA Galaxy(USA),

Group C: River Plate(ARG), Entracht Frankfurt(GER), UANL Tigres(MEX), US U-20 National Team(USA)

Earlier this afternoon, Chris Seitz took to Twitter to ask you guys whether he should keep the beard or shave it?

Here at Toyota Stadium, we're partial to a little #FearTheBeard action, but what do you guys think?

Shave it? Keep it? Let us know in the poll!

P.S. In case you didn't know, Seitz has been pretty much awesome so far this season and currently sits tied for second in saves in MLS.

FC Dallas' next opponent has had a solid start to the 2014 season after a disappointing 2013. Chivas USA opened their campaign with a 3-2 win over the Chicago Fire in week one and managed a 1-1 draw against Vancouver Whitecaps FC in week two despite losing midfielder Agustin Pelletieri to a red card in the 13th minute.

It's a small sample size, but Chivas USA's encouraging peformances thus far have prompted MLSsoccer.com's Andrew Wiebe to break down whether or not the Goats are the real deal?

What do you think of Wiebe's analysis?
