Ferreira named to MLS Best XI

FC Dallas midfielder David Ferreira has been named to the 2010 MLS Best XI, which annually honors the league’s best players at their positions.

One of three finalists for the 2010 Volkswagen MLS MVP award, Ferreira scored eight goals and dished out 13 assists (second-most in the league) during the regular season. The Colombian playmaker has been widely praised all season for his play and importance to the Dallas attack. Despite being the most fouled player in MLS, the sturdy midfielder has played all but one minute for the Dallas side this season. On Sunday, he scored the first of three Dallas goals against the L.A. Galaxy to send FC Dallas to its first MLS Cup.

The Dallas side will travel to Toronto to take on Eastern Conference Champion Colorado on Sunday, Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. CT on ESPN.
