Can FC Dallas stay perfect in MLS in the first road match of the season at Philadelphia? We break it all down in the Keys to the Match presented by Toyota.
First segment … The show co-hosts talk about Marc Stein's recent trip to Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in the Spanish capital to see Real Madrid in a Champions League dandy.
Second segment … Dallas Mavericks president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson is branching into futsal and a new professional league, so we visit with him about it.
Third segment … Stein and Steve Davis talk about New York City FC's debut match inside historic Yankee Stadium … the good and the bad of it.
Fourth segment … Show producer Tyler Kern caught up with U.S. women's national team star Sydney Leroux; topics include the team's recent Algarve Cup championship and her marriage to Sporting Kansas City striker Dom Dwyer.
You won't see a better counterattacking goal than this one.
Up 2-1 in the second half of Saturday's match against Sporting Kansas City, it took just eight seconds for FCD to win the ball back in their own half and deposit it in the Kansas City goal. Michel -> Hollingshead -> Castillo. Goal.

WATCH: GOTW Week 2
When you play as well as Dallas has, people take notice and FC Dallas has jumped to the top spot in the Week 2 ESPN MLS Power Rankings.
Tough defense and killer play in transition continues to be a winning formula for Dallas, in this case against Kansas City. Blas Perez celebrated his birthday in style, scoring two goals. If Mauro Diaz can regain his magic from a year ago, look out.
Jason Davis of ESPN also had this to say about FCD while listing Zach Loyd and Blas Perez in his team of the week.
It's early, really early, but the best team thus far in the Western Conference isn't the LA Galaxy or the Seattle Sounders...it's FC Dallas.
It is really early, but this team sure is a lot of fun isn't it?
