FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman has always been one to say what’s on his mind. That’s why when he was asked about his club’s next opponent, DC United, whom FCD will face on Friday night at RFK Stadium, he offered an honest assessment of what he expects from the Black-and-Red.
“They’re a team that hasn’t won yet and that’s always a dangerous team to play because their focus is so much on their first win,” Hyndman said. “What they bring is I think is a lot of emotion right now, trying to get that first win. They bring a very good strike force with two good forwards - Maicon Santos and Hamdi Salihi. He’s a very good player, Albania type of player. We don’t know too much about him but obviously a box striker. The key player to them is [Dwayne] De Rosario. He really is a difference maker, Golden Boot winner last year. He can play up front. He can play attacking midfield but he’s a player if you let him do what he wants to do, he’ll hurt you.”
