New additions Kenny Cooper and Eric Hassli joined FC Dallas in Cancun on Feb. 5 and immediately made an impact. Cooper tallied three goals and two assists in the three scrimmages.Cooper began his professional career with Manchester United; he signed with FC Dallas in 2006, but was traded to the New York Red Bulls in 2012. His return to Dallas should please the fans. Eric Hassli joined the team after short stints with the Vancouver Whitecaps and FC Toronto.
