Jackson's return having wide impact on FCD

Now that Jackson can put a busy last week behind him, the versatile Brazilian can now focus on doing what he does best, namely making FC Dallas a better club when he’s on the pitch, whether it’s as a member of head coach Schellas Hyndman’s first 11 or off the bench. Jackson made his first start of 2012 in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with the Los Angeles Galaxy at the Home Depot Center and Hyndman definitely saw the same Jackson of old.

“Having Jackson on the field helps Brek [Shea] and helps [Fabian] Castillo because now there’s another guy you’ve got to worry about plus Jackson really distributes good balls,” he said.
