FC Dallas is on a roll, and surging toward a place in the Western Conference playoffs, and Fabian Castillo and Tesh Akindele are at the forefront of that surge.
This week’s SBI MLS Player of the Week and Rookie of the Week helped FC Dallas dismantle the San Jose Earthquakes, and Castillo and Akindele headline this week’s SBI MLS Best XI.
