Just six days on from our previous home game, and we face a side in FC Dallas that we met in Texas only two weeks ago.
Two premier forwards are set to go head-to-head in this week's Western Union International Matchup to Watch.
Fabian Castillo is a native of Colombia entering his fifth year with FC Dallas. Castillo is coming off a 2014 campaign where he finished the season with ten goals. Last week against Toronto FC, Castillo struck early and often by finding the back of the net twice in the game's first ten minutes, thus earning him MLS Player of the Week honors.
