Dallas striker Kenny Cooper continues to make a case for a USA call up with another wonder strike against DC United at the weekend. FC Dallas were only able to get a point in Washington with a 2-2 draw, but Cooper was feeling confident after the game that with the midfield starting to gel the season could turn around.

"We have a lot of quality in the midfield," Cooper said. "We have not only guys who can play well defensively but guys who can play a killer pass too.

"Andre Rocha is like a quarterback so guys up front like Dom [Dominic Oduro] and Jeff who have so much speed so we can look for him to thread us through. The midfielders played some great balls tonight and we had some great opportunities."
