FC Dallas' surge is getting noticed in the soccer world this week and David Ferreira is front and center in media coverage. The MLS Player of the Week spoke with ESPN's Jeff Carlisle and opened up about the difficulty of his lengthy rehab and his concerns about returning to the pitch. The entire piece is worth a read, but here's an excerpt:

"Definitely there were moments I thought that [I wouldn't return]," Ferreira said. "I was committed during all my therapy sessions, but then I injured myself again and nothing resulted quickly. The support of my family was fundamental and everyone as well as the group encouraged me and strengthened to keep looking forward. Thank God things are going well, and let's hope going forward there are no injuries and I can enjoy many more years of soccer."

That signed ball - which he showed on air - is an FC Dallas soccer ball autographed by Stewart. Watch the video from the newscast:

The unknown voters behind the MLS Power Rankings vaulted FC Dallas up three spots this week to No. 10 in the Week 24 rankings after two big road wins. FCD won at Vancouver 2-0 on Wednesday and defeated RSL 2-1 Saturday night on a stoppage time winner from David Ferreira. Here's what the voters had to say:

It’s amazing what having your best player fit and healthy can do. David Ferreira may very well be the most important player in the league, and not just because he’s amazing in his own right, but because of how much better he makes guys like Brek Shea and Fabián Castillo.

Seventy-five years of futility are now officially in the past.

The US national team made history at Mexico City’s Estadio Azteca on Wednesday night, stunning Mexico 1-0 thanks to a late goal by substitute defender Michael Orozco Fiscal.

The victory marks the United States’ first-ever win on Mexican soil, ending a long, painful winless streak and handing Jurgen Klinsmann’s side a massive confidence boost as they prepare to resume World Cup qualifying next month. And it arrived in the most unlikely scenario imaginable, delivered by a hybrid roster shorn of top contributors like Clint Dempsey, Jozy Altidore and Carlos Bocanegra.

The Yanks’ forward forays were few and far between but Brek Shea made the most of his first such opportunity after entering the game for Herculez Gomez in the 78th minute. The FC Dallas winger slashed into the Mexican penalty area barely two minutes later and centered to Terrence Boyd, whose improvised back heel skipped into the path of Orozco Fiscal for a short-range finish past Guillermo Ochoa to stun the Azteca crowd.
