  1. Pierce Wear #7 on Solar, scored the first goal and was a factor the whole game. The focus and quality of the well placed shot is overlooked completely. My brother is 17, one of the youngest on the field in that final, playing against these 18/19 year olds and is not letting that affect the way he finishes chances. In fact, he created and paved the way for our victory with the opening goal. He played every minute as well as every other game in the Dallas Cup. I’m not sure why this platform or others have not said one word about his goal or him in general. He creates opportunities and scores goals. I’m starting to believe the soccer intelligence behind these forms are subpar. You will see soon and remember i said this.

    1. #7 was terrific.
      But we cover FC Dallas, not Solar.
      I mentioned one player I liked in the results post I did, that does not mean other players were not excellent.
      To win Dallas Cup is a great achievement. The entire team has to be good.
      But we were not covering the final to do a game story or player breakdown.

  2. Oh boo hoo!!!!
    “My brother is Superman! But you didn’t mention him, you big meanie! Boo hooooo!”.
    You really trolled this article, only because the guy didn’t mention EVERYONE in his article?
