He is back! Mauro Diaz is back on the bench for the first time in 2017.
Oscar Pareja revealed his 18-man roster for tonight’s Texas Derby against the Houston Dynamo. Not only did he go back to the lineup that was working for the club earlier in the year (a 4-4-2) but he dropped the big bomb of Diaz’s return to FC Dallas.
Diaz tore his Achilles' tendon on October 16, 2016 in a win over Seattle. He has been seen in training more and more over the last few weeks.
