What we learned in FC Dallas’ win over Memphis

FC Dallas picked up another much-needed victory on Tuesday night, a US Open Cup Round of 32 win over USL Championship side Memphis 901.

This morning, as I sit in a pub at the Pittsburgh AirportI thought I’d take a few minutes to discuss the comments made by head coach Nico Estevez and the game’s goal scorer, Logan Farrington, after last night’s win. I’m also going to take a quick look back at a match that FC Dallas had control over for the most part.

This will not be our normal distribution of the match as we need to quickly turn our attention to Saturday’s match against Austin FC.

For a coach who had to go for it in a cup tournament at home against a lower division team, Estevez didn’t really have much pressure with his choice of formation. He stuck it out again with the 3-4-3, as he reintroduced Jesus Ferreira and Asier Illarramendi into the line-up after the two were not ‘fully fit’ enough, Nico’s words there in Toronto last week.
