The silver lining (sort of) FC Dallas will benefit from as a result of U.S., Honduras and Ecuador missing the World Cup

Last season, FC Dallas coach Oscar Pareja said consistent absences from key players like Kellyn Acosta, Hedges and Figueroa made his life more difficult during a frustrating year in which FCD fell short of the playoffs.While missing the World Cup was supremely disappointing for the United States, Honduras and Ecuador, the benefit for FCD is they'll be able to keep those players around even after MLS returns from a brief break for the group stage of this summer's showcase.With many provisional rosters being announced Monday, it was a reminder of both the disappointment felt at his players...

Though healthier, will Acosta's training with rising FCD star make it harder for him to find playing time

Though healthier, will Acosta's training with rising FCD star make it harder for him to find playing time

After a frustrating 2017 during which he was part of an FC Dallas team that failed to make the playoffs and a United States national team that failed to make the World Cup, Kellyn Acosta was ready to start 2018 strong.Instead, he's spent most of the year apart from his teammates recovering from a sports hernia.

Now he's patiently waiting for his opportunity to get back on the field."We were grinding a lot in the offseason, and you could...
