FC Dallas coach doesn't believe his team can handle any pressure

As FC Dallas continue their slow start to the 2009 MLS season, head coach Schellas Hyndman is concerned his team cannot handle the pressure.

Speaking to reporters after his side's 2-0 loss in DC Hyndman said, "Disappointment. Not to take anything away from DC United, they outplayed us.

"They played quick, aggressive. For us, the disappointment comes from giving up two goals and we've given up 14 goals in seven games. You'd think your center of your defence should be your strongest and both goals come through there so it's disappointing.

"I think the opposition is trying to play quicker balls through the center," Hyndman continued.

"They are trying to unbalance us with the diagonal balls. It doesn't take a lot to figure out where are weaknesses are; I think right now we are not able to handle pressure real well."
