FC Dallas Utilizes all Draft Picks
FC Dallas Selects Callum Montgomery(D), John Nelson(D), Eduvie Ikoba(F), Sam Ebstein(F/M), & Dylan Castanheira (G). Montgomery and Nelson were selected in the ceremonious 2019 MLS Super Draft that took place in Chicago. Ismael took time to break down our newest defensive signings, their play attributes, and roles that they could possibly have with the team.
In Rounds 3 & 4, FCD got more attacking, midfield, and goalkeeping depth. I think that Callum and Nelson have the best shot at seeing first team minutes, though I would think that the majority of our draft picks’ play time will be within USL League 1 with North Texas SC.

The Sidekicks took on the in-division rivals the Monterrey Flash in a tough home loss ending 1-5. The first period did end somewhat favorably with the Sidekicks only being down by one goal. The Sidekicks did hold their own throughout the whole game with Anthony Powell scoring the lone goal. Monterrey’s goalkeeper was put up to the test facing 22 shots from the Sidekicks.
I don’t watch much MASL but my goodness, TJ Nelson had quite the game and displayed some very solid defending for the home side. Also, here is my favorite part of the game.
You would think the Sidekicks would do better considering Monterrey is hydrating with cokes. pic.twitter.com/0oVZsjAeBl
