The undefeated FC Dallas Reserves will host future Major League Soccer side Orlando City Soccer Club at Toyota Stadium on Tuesday, April 22 at 7pm. Orlando City is playing out its final season in USL Pro before joining the MLS ranks in 2015.
FC Dallas forward Cobi Span (right, photo courtesy of Orlando City SC), who joined Orlando on loan on April 2, will be eligible to play against his FC Dallas teammates on Tuesday.
It's a unique situation for Span, who scored the game-winning goal in his OCSC debut on April 12 before being recalled by FC Dallas for a Reserve match against Oklahoma City Energy FC on April 15 in which he assisted on Andrew Jacobson's game-winning goal. But on Tuesday the young forward will be lining up against the players who were his teammates last week.
“I don’t know who is going to play exactly, but I’m going to know all the guys,” Span told OrlandoCitySoccer.com of playing against FC Dallas. “It’s a pretty big friendly match for me. It’s going to be fun playing against a team where you know everybody.”
Just as Span was recalled for last week's Reserve match, FC Dallas has recalled Homegrown forward Jonathan Top (right, photo courtesy of Arizona United SC) from his loan with USL Pro's Arizona United SC for Tuesday's game against Orlando City. Top returns to Frisco fresh off scoring the game-winning goal for Arizona United on Saturday night to help the new club to it's first win as a franchise.
The FC Dallas Reserves will kick off against Orlando City SC at 7pm on Tuesday night and parking and admission into Toyota Stadium will be FREE.
