FRISCO, Texas — Decision Day, pres. by AT&T couldn't have been more electric at Toyota Stadium on Sunday. FC Dallas put six goals past Sporting KC in the last game of the regular season, securing a playoff berth for a second-straight year.
After a dominant performance like the one put on display Sunday afternoon, FC Dallas was bound to have some players in MLS' Team of the Week 31.
Zdenek Ondrasek and Bryan Acosta both made the Team of the Week Starting XI, and the duo connected on the first FC Dallas goal in Sunday's match. Acosta played a beautiful ball over the top, which found the foot of Ondrasek and led to a goal that was slotted home to the keeper's left. Acosta was a force in the midfield throughout the day, and had a massive contribution to FCD's clean sheet. Ondrasek netted two goals in the game, and was also named Man of the Match by the fans.
Head Coach Luchi Gonzalez was named Coach of the Week as he secured a playoff berth in his first season at the helm of the club. Before the match, Gonzalez challenged his squad to win five more games in 2019, and his players took an important step to reach that goal.
FCD winger Michael Barrios is featured on the Team of the Week bench following his goal and assist on Decision Day in a 90-minute showing. Barrios ran rampant down both wings against SKC, and the opponent rarely had an answer for his pace and creativity.
