There were plenty of positives but the one time FC Dallas failed to stop Hany Mukhtar, they paid a price for it.
FC Dallas is now on a losing streak. Yeah, after a month of league play that saw them go on a nice unbeaten run, the script has been flipped, and we’re on a two-game losing streak following the loss to Nashville SC on Saturday.
