Jesús Ferreira tallied off two free kicks within a four-minute span to rally FC Dallas to a 2-1 comeback victory over the LA Galaxy on Saturday, Sept. 10, while tying the club’s season goal-scoring record (18). He scored the equalizer in the 78th minute after Franco Escobar fouled Marco Farfan on the outside the left side of the penalty area.
FCD and USMNT teammate Paul Arriola caught the Galaxy asleep, tapping a quick free kick to Ferreira in the box who fired it home from four yards out to equalize.
In the 82nd minute, Ferreira drilled home a free kick from the right side into the lower left corner for the game-winner. The 21-year-old forward tied Jason Kreis (1999) and Kenny Cooper (2008) for the club’s single-season goals record with three games remaining. He also moved into a third-place tie in FC Dallas career scoring (36 goals in 111 matches).
Three of Arriola’s five assists have set up Ferreira goals this season.
Ferreira is fourth in the MLS Golden Boot race, trailing Nashville SC’s Hany Mukhtar (22) by four goals. Dallas has three games remaining in the regular season.
