I haven't seen much of FC Dallas in preseason but I know they were a very strong side in 2011 than sort of broke down at the end of the year with fatigue. This was without Ferriera as well. They are a team that attacks with pace and transitions well. They are generally very solid at keeper with Hartman and athletic in defense.
A very strong side that we beat twice last year at their place and haven't lost to since 09. Why shouldn't we be confident?
