In case you missed this. FC Dallas are going to their first MLS final after shocking the pre-abortive favourites LA Galaxy.
This defeat was not because the big names in the Galaxy did not show up to play – in fact David Beckham, Landon Donovan, and Juninho were outstanding. They were undone by a superb Dallas performance.
Kevin Hartman was an absolute rock in goal bringing of spectacular save after save. Up front the pace of Atiba Harris, Marvin Chavez, and MVP candidate David Ferreira proved too much for the Galaxy defense. The trio combined for the first and the last goal with Ferreira and Chavez getting on the board. The second was created by Brek Shea and finished by George John, Dallas’s central defender, scoring his first ever MLS goal.
A well deserved victory and now Dallas meet the Colorado Rapids in the MLS final on November 21st.
