FCD Seeks Vengeance In Vancouver

It’s fair to say that FCD was hard done by the result in Vancouver towards the beginning of the 2012 campaign. A brilliant Camillo strike within the first 15 minutes shell-shocked Dallas -  a team that was bereft of confidence and struggling to find form after starting the season so well, and then struggling so quickly to repeat that form.
