FC Dallas midfielders Eric Avila and Bruno Guarda plus defender Blake Wagner are to train with their Brazilian sister club, Atletico Paranaense for 10 days. "I think it's something that will be great for me," Avila said. "We're not doing anything in the offseason and I have no plans to go and play. So when this came up, it was perfect.

"I will be training with the CAP first team twice a day and getting ready for the season. After that, I think I will be ready to go."
