[SUENO MLS 2012] Six players -- five field players and a goalie -- were named finalists to represent FC Dallas at the Sueno MLS 2012, the nationally televised player search showcased on Univision's Republica Deportiva.

Now celebrating its sixth year, Sueno MLS 2012 is being staged by three MLS clubs: first-time host Seattle, Chivas USA and FC Dallas. Up to 400 tryout spots were made available at each city on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The four-day “Final Event" will be staged in the greater Los Angeles area and hosted by former MLS star Guillermo Barros Schelotto.
