Homegrown forward expected to play in two USL matches this week
FRISCO – FC Dallas has loaned Homegrown forward Jesus Ferreira to USL side Tulsa Roughnecks FC.
Ferreira is eligible to be recalled by FC Dallas at any point this season. Tulsa is currently 15th in the USL table with a record of 0-3-4. Roughnecks FC host Reno 1868 FC tomorrow at ONEOK Field (7PM CT). Ferreira will remain with the club for its match this Saturday, May 12 vs. Phoenix Rising FC. That match is also set to kick off at 7PM CT.
Ferreira, 17, made MLS debut on June 3, 2017 vs. Real Salt Lake. After coming on for Roland Lamah in the 71st minute, Ferreira became the second-youngest player in MLS history to score a goal when he brought down a pass from Michael Barrios and slid a shot past the goalkeeper. The son of former MLS MVP, David Ferreira was also part of the teams that won the 2017 Dallas Cup Super Group and the 2015-16 U.S. Soccer Development Academy Championship.
Ferreira underwent a procedure to repair a sports hernia injury on March 20.
