Schellas Hyndman on FC Dallas' next opponent, DC United

I asked FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman for his thoughts on his club’s next opponent, DC United, whom FCD will face on Friday night at RFK Stadium. Here’s what he had to say about the Red-and-Black.

What are your general thoughts on DC?

Hyndman: They’re a lot better than their record and they continue to improve. They continue to add things to their team. KC beat them in extended time at home in I think first game of the year. Vancouver’s a great team, so that’s probably a great point for them. We’re expecting quite a bit from them.

Are you surprised that reigning MLS MVP and Golden Boot winner Dwayne De Rosario has no goals and no assists through DC’s first three games?

Hyndman: No, not really. I think they’ve had quite a bit of changes, so it’s just people coordinating and getting together. He’s definitely a good player. You look at the three games we played. Our goal scoring leader is Villar. What a great free kick the other day, what a fantastic free kick and of course, the goal against New York. I think De Rosario has all those capabilities as well.
