Two new trialists in FC Dallas Arizona camp

3/3/2011

FC Dallas has two new trialists in their Arizona camp, Christian Arrieta and Kevin Gall. Both played yesterday against the Montreal Impact.

Christian Arrieta (age 31) played last season with the Philadelphia Union, appearing in 16 games as a defender. He can play both center back, as he did in the FCD scrimmage, and right back. A Puerto Rican International (and US Citizen), Arrieta grew up in Europe and played in several lower levels of the Italian leagues before joining the Puerto Rico Islanders and eventually Union. At 6'2" Arrieta is a big, strong defender that Hyndman is likely considering for depth with all this center back injuries.

Kevin Gall (age 29) is a Welsh striker who has spent the majority of his career in the lower leagues in Great Britain, most recently with Wrexham. He at one time was in discussion to join Toronto FC, but the deal didn't happen. 5'9", Gall is a darting winger/striker of the kind FC Dallas already has in abundance.
