FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman expects big things from rookie striker Peri Marosevic in 2010.

FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman expects big things from rookie striker Peri Marosevic in 2010.

Marosevic's time with the first team was limited to just four games and a total of 47 minutes. He spent much of the season in and out of training with several trips to play for the U.S. under-20 national team, including a trek to Egypt to play in the FIFA U-20 World Cup in September.

Hyndman told mlsnet.com: "I think he's got a good nose for the goal. He's a good finisher.

"I think he has a lot of mobility on his runs and so forth. ... I think not having a reserve league or an opportunity to play hurt him. I think it also hurt him in the under-20s where he didn't get a lot of expected playing time. When I figured it all up, he played like 79 minutes all year and that's not even a game. So I think there's a lot more there than we need and a lot more he can give."
