[MLS PRESEASON] The U.S. under-23 national team beat FC Dallas, 2-1, in a warmup game played Wednesday in Frisco, Texas, notable for the winning goal Brek Shea scored -- and red card he received -- for the U.S. U-23s against his MLS team. Like Shea, Kofi Sarkodie exited for receiving two yellow cards, leaving the U-23s with nine players to finish the game.

Freddy Adu set up goals by Ike Opara and Shea as the U-23s rallied from a 1-0 deficit.

The U-23s would have won by a bigger margin but for a big game in goal by Kevin Hartman, who stopped an Adu penalty kick.

    Hard to believe Freddy Adu is still U23
