- FC Dallas saw their shutout streak come to an end at 531 minutes, the fifth-longest stretch without conceding a goal in MLS history. It was an FCD club record and the longest in the league this season. The MLS record is 727 scoreless minutes, set by Houston in 2007.
- FC Dallas also ended the month of May unbeaten in seven games. A year ago, FCD lost once in the month (May 20, 0-1 to LA Galaxy) – their last loss until mid-October, 19 games unbeaten. Dallas currently has an eight-game undefeated streak overall.
- After three consecutive home games, FC Dallas embarked on a two-game trip in four days to Seattle and Houston and came away with four of a possible six points.
- After five consecutive appearances as a substitute, rookie Bobby Warshaw made his first MLS start, coming into central defense in place of George John. Warshaw was the club’s first-round selection (17th overall) out of Stanford University in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft.
NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION
- The Revolution were shut out for the fifth time in eight games against the LA Galaxy. They’ve scored five goals in all over that stretch.
- The Revolution have taken just one point from six games when they’ve allowed the first goal, in the bottom four percentage-wise in MLS, matched by Sporting KC and Toronto FC and ahead of just Real Salt Lake, who have lost both games when they’ve conceded first.
- The Revolution were forced into an early change when center back Ryan Cochrane had a clash of heads and had to come off at halftime. Cochrane is listed as out for the Dallas match with a concussion.
- As well, Benny Feilhaber suffered an ankle injury that is expected to not only put him out of the U.S. team for the CONCACAF Gold Cup, but out of action for a month.
- In response, Shalrie Joseph informed the Grenada Football Federation he has declined the invitation to play for his country in the Gold Cup.
- The game against FC Dallas will be the 10th of 13 games thus far against Western Conference opposition for the Revolution. Two of New England’s three wins have come in the Eastern Conference (D.C. United, Sporting KC).
