[BY THE NUMBERS] FC Dallas has continued its recovery from its May swoon when it went winless in seven games, going unbeaten since MLS's World Cup break.

It is unbeaten in seven games, pushing its unbeaten streak to nine games, and leading all MLS clubs in points per game since the break, ahead of Sporting Kansas City, the LA Galaxy, Real Salt Lake and D.C. United. Philadelphia, which changed coaches at the MLS break, ranks sixth since play resumed.

FC Dallas has along with Real Salt Lake the longest active winning streak at three games. During that stretch, rookie Tesho Akindele has scored four goals, and Fabian Castillo, coming off suspension, has three goals and two assists.

At the bottom of the post-World Cup pack are New England, Montreal and Colorado. With one win in nine games, the Revs have the worst record, dropping from second in the Eastern Conference at the break to tied for sixth. The Rapids dropped from tied for third in the Western Conference to tied for sixth. The Impact was and still is last in the overall standings.
