Jackson playing himself into game shape

Jackson Goncalves has now played five games, four of which were starts since returning to FC Dallas in the middle of last month. He has had some solid moments for FCD, but it’s also been clear that he isn’t match fit, something Dallas gaffer Schellas Hyndman addressed after practice Monday morning.

“Attitude-wise, 60 percent better. Focus wise, much better. Emotional intelligence, much better and he’s playing himself into game shape. Would I like to give him more rest time? Absolutely, but with the injuries we have it’s kind of hard,” Hyndman said.
