Last Thursday, FC Dallas announced they had recalled Jackson Goncalves from his loan to Brazilian side Cruzeiro. However, as of yet, the versatile South American defender, midfielder, and even occasional forward, has yet to return to Frisco.
Jackson could be back in Frisco later this week, and it will be interesting if he arrives back in time to possibly be available for Saturday’s game at Vancouver. Dallas’ last day of training in the Lone Star State is Wednesday before the team leaves on Thursday. FCD plans to train in Vancouver on Friday.
“I don’t know [exactly when he’ll be here],” Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman said after a recovery session on Monday. “I think his whole thing is just getting his visa, getting into the American Embassy and getting his visa. We have all the paperwork and everything in place. He could have been here last week, so hopefully he’ll be here shortly.”
