Red Card dooms FC Dallas in DC loss

A great start on the road is necessary if any team wants to get good results.  FC Dallas got the great start they needed in Washington DC Saturday night.  A Mauro Diaz 13th minute goal vaulted FCD ahead and they looked like they were on their way to a good road performance.  Unfortunately that all changed soon after as a reckless Zach Loyd was sent to the dressing room in the 39th minute with his second yellow card.  

The loss of the outside back forced coach Oscar Pareja to make tactical substitutions that didn't help the situation and led the visitors on their way to a 4-1 blowout loss.  Pareja was forced to sacrifice star central midfielder Mauro Diaz to bring on more defensive reinforcements before halftime, but it didn't work as Fabian Espindola scored right at the end of the 1st half tying the match at 1-1.

Blas Perez was taken off just after the break and very quickly FC Dallas had taken off two of their most trusted attacking weapons.  DC United took capitalized.

DC United star Fabian Espindola took advantage of the extra space and punished the Dallas defense scoring twice and assisting on another DC United goal.  Three goals in under 25 minutes blasted open the 1-1 match leaving FCD on the short end of a 4-1 loss.  The loss got even worse in stoppage time when Michel was shown a straight red for taking a swipe at a DC player.  Hopefully it does not result in more than a single game suspension.
