FRISCO, Texas (Tuesday, Feb. 12) – FC Dallas wrapped up its week-long preseason training in Cancun presented by the state of Quintana Roo on Monday, having earned three wins in scrimmages with Mexican sides throughout the week.
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.
The Dallas side is scheduled to train on Wednesday and Thursday at 10 a.m. on the Adidas Field at FC Dallas Stadium, before traveling to Portland, Ore., on Friday for its final trip of the 2013 preseason. FC Dallas will return to Frisco on Feb. 25, just five days ahead of its 2013 season opener presented by AdvoCare against the Colorado Rapids on Saturday, March 2. That match is scheduled to kick off at 7:30 p.m.
