Rankings Recap: FC Dallas jumps back up in latest Power Rankings

New, 2 comments

Another win gives FC Dallas some positive movement in the latest polls.

MLS: Montreal Impact at FC Dallas Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

The rollercoaster March continues as FC Dallas is back up in the latest Power Ranking polls from around the internet.

MLSSoccer.com Ranking - 2 (last week 5)

Comment: They clearly took a mulligan for the 5-0 loss to Houston two weeks ago, and were defensively dominant against the previously rampant Impact. We think that's what this team truly is.

Soccer America Ranking - 8 (last week 12)

Comment: Blitzed for five goals last week in Houston, FCD tightened up the defense and eventually got goals with a great Mauro Diaz free kick and a late Max Urruti strike. So far this season FCD has pitched two shutouts and surrendered five in its other game. Seven players have been called for international duty so what happens after the break is anybody’s guess.

SI.com Ranking - 2 (last week 5)

Comment: FC Dallas out-shot Montreal, 15-6, but needed until the 79th minute to break the Impact’s defensive posture, eventually winning 2-0.

ESPNFC.com Ranking - 5 (last week 5)

Comment: After last week's strange 5-0 loss in Houston, the real FC Dallas reappeared in a strong 2-0 win against Montreal. Maxi Urruti continues to shine as the forward FCD needed to round out their attack.
