FC Dallas steamrolls AZ Sahuaros
Aside form the injury debacle at center back, which Brek Shea pairing with Scott Gordon, most of the starting eleven took the field to start the match. It's perhaps not shocking that FCD was up 6-0 at halftime then. Eric Avila got the nod at left mid with Shea in the back line. Eric Alexander continues to hold down the linking midfield role.
It can't be good for Maykel Galindo or Kevin Gal that they failed to score in the 2nd half against this level of competition before being pulled for home grown players. Ruben Luna netted in the 90th plus minute for the 7th FCD goal.
Milton Rodriguez (Jair Benitez) 26
Eric Avila (Eric Alexander) 30
Rodriguez (Jackson) 35
Jackson (David Ferreira) 36
Ferreira (Alexander) 38
Marvin Chavez (Ferreira) 41
Ruben Luna 90+
