Power Rankings: FC Dallas continues to rise

FC Dallas won on the road, and many took notice.

MLS: FC Dallas at Montreal Impact Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to another week of the MLS Power Rankings. FC Dallas had a big 2-1 comeback victory on the road against Montreal, and boy did it raise some eyebrows. People are taking notice that summer is in full swing, and FC Dallas is beginning to catch fire.

Only a handful of sites posted their rankings, as many others will wait till after the Gold Cup is officially concluded, before posting their rankings.

MLS - Ranking 3 (Last Week 4)

Comments: Don’t look now, but FCD have all of a sudden gone on an undefeated 3-0-2 run and sit atop the West … with two games in hand. And with big signing Cristian Colman coming to life and their USMNT stars returning in a few days, a run for a second straight Supporters' Shield might be just starting.

ESPNFC - Ranking 4 (Last Week 4)

Comments: It took more than half the season but Cristian Colman is finally off the mark with two goals that delivered a big 2-1 win in Montreal.

Planet Futbol - Ranking 4 (Last Week 5)

Comments: After an early-summer swoon, FC Dallas appears to be back on the right track. Oscar Pareja’s side has won three straight games, including home victories over D.C. United and Toronto FC and three points away at Montreal. Last weekend’s result in Canada may be the most impressive, and the most important; highly-touted striker Cristian Colman finally got his first two goals of the season. If he gets going alongside Maxi Urruti and Mauro Diaz’s health continues to improve after a long injury layoff, watch out.

Soccer America - Ranking 5 (Last Week 5)

Comments: That's more like it. A eruption of four goals in 15 minutes -- including two by Roland Lamah -- swept aside D.C. United. Cristian Colman timed his breakthrough perfectly to net his first two MLS goals after one was wrongly not given though the ball crossed the line. FCD has won three in a row and is unbeaten in its last five.

One Football - Ranking 1 (Last Week 2)

Comments: Cristian Colmán decided to pop up and score his first two goals for FC Dallas in their win at Montreal. If the young DP can become a consistent goalscoring threat and another attacking weapon for Óscar Pareja’s men then the rest of the league might be in trouble.
