Brek Shea to sport a new look for Pumas

When Brek Shea made his first appearance as the FC Dallas reserves were facing the Chicago Fire reserves on the Adidas field, the FCD midfielder and native Texan did so with a bit of a new look, sporting red stripes in his hair.

Dallas supporters might remember the corn rows look the affable Shea sported last year. He was asked about his new paint scheme and here’s what he had to say.

“I’ve done a couple of different colored stripes and went with red this time. FC Dallas wears red, so it’s red and white a little bit,” Shea said.

FCD fans will get their first look at his new color scheme tomorrow night when Dallas hosts Mexican First Division side Pumas in a CONCACAF Champions League group stage match at Pizza Hut Park.

Shea figures to be in the first 11 for that one as well as on Saturday when in-state rival Houston visits PHP to determine which of the sides from the Lone Star State will retain El Capitan, the 19th Century replica Mountain Howitzer cannon given to the winner of the season series.

For the record, FCD has won the cannon in two of the last three years with the Dynamo last retaining it in 2009.

So, how long will Shea remain a redhead? Well, that will all depend on how the club performs on the pitch with his new look.

“It depends on how long it lasts. Yeah [if we win, I’ll keep it], probably, mostly, totally,” Shea said
