Santiago Mosquera gets an assist in his club debut.

FC Dallas picked up another preseason draw on Wednesday afternoon, a 2-2 decision to the New England Revolution.

Mauro Diaz scored FCD’s first goal in the 15th minute and newly signed Young DP Santiago Mosquera helped set up a Maxi Urruti goal in the second half.

The game started off with a bit of a bang as Carlos Gruezo was brought down seven minutes on a rough challenge by New England midfielder Wilfried Zahibo. The new Rev’s DP was shown a red card for the challenge.

Despite the rough challenge, Gruezo remained in the match for the next 20 minutes and he helped the build up play on the first Dallas goal. Michael Barrios got the ball on the right sideline and then found Urruti in the penalty box. Urruti beat his defender before putting a tough shot on goal that forced a save that made its way out to Diaz who slotted home the easy rebound.

The Revolution evened the score at the beginning of the second half. Cristian Penilla found some open space at the back post and used a first-touch finish to beat FC Dallas goalkeeper Jimmy Maurer.

Dallas responded nicely though as Mosquera came onto the pitch for his first minutes in a Dallas uniform. The Colombian flew down the left wing before hitting a pass to the middle of the penalty box where Urruti was there to tap it in for the go-ahead goal.

New England found their response in the 84th minute however. Diego Fagundez worked through two FC Dallas defenders before passing the ball to Kelyn Rowe. Rowe attempted a shot that was blocked but not cleared out as Fagundez got a foot on the ball and a shot to tie the game.

FC Dallas returns to action tomorrow with a reserves game before playing the Portland Timbers on Saturday afternoon.
