Welcome to another week of Big D Soccer’s coverage of your favorite players with ties to FC Dallas, the FCD Academy, and the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

Castillo may be on the move to another European club, Weston continued to start for the USMNT, and Zimmerman had a big game.


Europe

Weston McKennie (AP - Schalke 04/Bundesliga): Weston got the start Saturday, against a stacked French Men’s National Team. Weston did not have his best game, but he had his moments:

The USMNT would go on to earn a 1-1 draw, in a match that many expected France to dominate.

Next Match: Season is over for Schalke 04, so all that is left, is for Weston to enjoy his offseason:

Keaton Parks (DFW - Benfica/Primeira Liga): Keaton got healthy in time for the match against France, but was a late scratch for the USMNT (coach’s decision).

Next Match: Season is over.

Ramiro Funes Mori (DFW - Everton/Premier League): There is still no word on where Ramiro will land this summer. The current rumor has Argentinian giants River Platte looking to bring Ramiro in on loan.

Fabian Castillo (FCD - Trabzonspor/Super Lig) - Look like Castillo could be on the move, but will remain in Europe:

FC Lugano of the Super League (Switzerland), is said to be keen on signing Castillo. FC Lugano was in the EUFA Europa League last season, and finished third in their group. FC Lugano would struggle through their regular season, and finish in eighth place (out of 10).

Mexico - Season Concluded

Central America - Season Concluded

Blas Perez (FCD - CSD Municipal/Guatemala): Blas is currently in Russia, with Panama, training for their first match of the World Cup.

Major League Soccer

Chris Seitz (FCD - Houston Dynamo): Chris suited up Saturday, but did not play in the 2-0 Houston win, over the visiting Colorado Rapids.

Walker Zimmerman(FCD - Los Angeles FC): Walker started Saturday, at rival San Jose Earthquakes. LAFC was without Laurent Ciman, so it would be up to Walker to lead the backline. With Ciman missing, the defense was not up to the task, and the Earthquakes were ahead 3-2 late. With LAFC chasing for a goal to draw them even, Walker was asked to join in the attack, and Walker delivered:

Walker got the assist as LAFC drew even, and LAFC would go on to win 4-3.

LAFC may have allowed three goals, but that wasn’t entirely Walker’s fault, as he had a very dominant performance. He finished with two tackles, a team-leading five interceptions, a team-leading eight clearances, a game-high nine aerials won, two shot attempts, and 88.5% passing.

Next Match: US Open Cup - Los Angeles FC vs. Sacramento Republic FC, Wednesday, June 20, 9:30pm

Lee Nguyen (DFW - Los Angeles FC): Lee got the start in Saturdays 4-3 win at San Jose Earthquakes. While Lee was not involved in the scoring, he was very involved in the attack. He played the full match, and had his best match in an LAFC jersey. Lee had five key passes, two shot attempts, completed three crosses on five attempts, he beat three defenders on the dribble, and had 77.6% passing

Next Match: US Open Cup - Los Angeles FC vs. Sacramento Republic FC, Wednesday, June 20, 9:30pm

Brek Shea (DFW - Vancouver Whitecaps): Brek started at left back for the Whitecaps, and played the full match, in a 5-2 drubbing of visiting Orlando City SC.

The win sees Vancouver move to fourth place in the Western Conference.

Next Match: Philadelphia Union vs. Vancouver Whitecaps, Saturday, June 23, 4:00pm

Richard Sanchez (AP/FCD - Chicago Fire): Richard started Saturday, at the Colorado Rapids. Richard had 4 big saves, as Chicago earned a road point, with a 2-2 draw.

The draw sees Chicago to seventh place, in the Eastern Conference.

Next Match: US Open Cup - Atlanta United FC vs. Chicago Fire, Wednesday, June 20, 6:30pm

USL

Connor Presley (DFW - San Antonio FC): No match scheduled

Walker Hume (FCD - Orange County SC): Walker suited up Saturday, but did not play, in a 1-0 win at Los Angeles Galaxy II.

The win sees OCSC move to sixth place in the Western Conference.

Aaron Guillen (AP/FCD - North Carolina FC): Aaron

Corben Bone (DFW - FC Cincinnati) - Corben started Wednesday, against the visiting Bethlehem Steele. He had three shot attempts, and 86.5% passing with two key passes. FCC would have to settle for a 2-2 draw.

The draw sees FC Cincinnati remain first place in the Eastern Conference.

Je-Vaughn Watson (FCD - Charlotte Independence): Je-Vaughn started Saturday, at the New York Red Bulls. Je-Vaughn played the full match, and Charlotte would go on to suffer a 4-2 loss.

The loss sees the Charlotte Independence, drop to third place in the Eastern Conference.

Adonijah Reid ( Loan - Ottawa Fury) - Adonijah started Wednesday, at North Carolina FC. He was dangerous throughout, and he gave the NCFC defense fits, with his ability to dribble in traffic, and managed two shots on goal. Ottawa would suffer a 4-2 loss.

The loss drops Ottawa to 12th place in the Eastern Conference.

Jesus Ferreira & Brandon Servania (Loan - Tulsa Roughnecks) - Jesus and Brandon both started for the Tulsa Roughnecks on Saturday, against visiting Saint Louis FC.

Brandon played the full match, and looked solid through out. He struggled to connect in the attacking third with any attacker not named Jesus. Brandon finished with 80.8% passing, and two tackles.

Jesus looked very dangerous when he got the ball. The bad thing about that, is that he only touched the ball 21 times, in his 75 minutes of play. Even so, Jesus managed two shots on goal, and had 100% passing on nine pass attempts. Jesus is one of several talented attackers on the Roughneck roster, but while each is individually dangerous, there is a total disconnect between attackers in the attacking third.

Tulsa would go on to lose 3-0, and never really could get any organization going forward.

The loss drops Tulsa to 17th place in the Western Conference, with the second worst record in the USL.
