FC Dallas keeper in Mexico hot seat

[HOMEGROWN WATCH] Richard Sanchez, FC Dallas' most recent homegrown signing from its academy program, is certainly in the hot seat at the Under-17 World Cup in Mexico. He is the starting goalie for the hosts, who have opened with two wins in two games.

Sanchez was born in Mission Hills, Calif., grew up in Texas and spent time at Spain’s Atletico Madrid before joining FC Dallas Juniors two years ago.

At 16, he is the youngest goalie signed by an MLS team to a homegrown contract.

BOWEN BACK IN ACTION. Tristan Bowen, the first official homegrown signing in 2008, broke into the Los Angeles Galaxy lineup in 2010 but an offseason trade to Chivas USA has resulted in a change in fortunes.

Bowen injured his ankle and has played just 60 minutes for Chivas USA, which moved him from the frontline to midfield. He made two appearances in March but did not return to first-team action until Saturday's 2-0 loss at home to FC Dallas.

“It’s getting a little bit better each day. The training staff has been doing a great job of pushing me along,” Bowen told “It’s just a matter of confidence and knowing that I’m able to go on the field and execute plays that I’m used to doing.”

FUTURE PROSPECTS. Emerson Hyndman, grandson of FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman, made a late appearance off the bench Tuesday for the Dallas reserves in their 3-2 loss at West Texas United. Hyndman only turned 15 in April.

12-1 Andy Najar (D.C. United)
12-0 Nizar Khalfan (Vancouver)
10-2 Juan Agudelo (New York)
10-0 Ruben Luna (FC Dallas)
11-0 Bill Hamid (D.C. United)
10-0 Ethan White (D.C. United)
8-0 Russell Teibert (Vancouver)
4-0 Doneil Henry (Toronto FC)
4-0 Oscar Cordon (Toronto FC)
3-0 Tristan Bowen (Chivas USA)
3-0 Alex Dixon (Houston)
2-0 Matt Kassel (New York)
1-0 Keith Makubuya (Toronto FC)
1-0 Ashtone Morgan (Toronto FC)
1-0 Aaron Horton (Columbus)
