Dominique Badji hasn’t enjoyed a great time since he has landed at FC Dallas as he damaged his hammy pretty early in his stint and then when he made a comeback after recovering, that same injury resurfaced again and ruled him out of action for some more time, just adding to the frustration of the Senegal international.
But he is back on the pitch now, fit and fine, and even found the back of the net in the previous game Dallas played which although they lost as a team by the margin of two goals to one, but Badji’s form was certainly a positive sign for them as he looked agile and showed great intensity.

On paper, the match between Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake seemed like a perfect match in heaven. The two teams had never met before but they had a good knowledge of one another because we are in an age where information can easily be found online or in a video.
RSL came into the match on the back of plenty of positives – seven wins in its last nine games and a Western Conference-leading home record – which is a remarkable feat for any club.
There are only a few mid-season signings that slot into fresh sides beginning to line-up. However, Brad Smith feels so much at home wearing a Seattle Sounders shirt and especially after entering only in the beginning of August. Smith is the left back and he made an entry into the club on a loan from Premier League. Smith wanted to be convinced to leave south coast of England and to his surprise Brian Schmetzer, the head coach personally rang him up to announce about the opportunity. After having a long chat, Smith did not take time to take a decision and it appeared like he made the right choice.
The immigration paperwork is all done smoothly and his debut appearance was seen before time. He made his first appearance which made the Sounders beat FC Dallas as their previous games were unbeaten. However, Smith is yet to experience defeat in his new club and has been consistent in playing a significant role in all four wins. His brilliant crossing helped in a goal for Raul Ruidiaz. Smith has an excellent pace which is one of the greatest skills that he acquires and much needed for the sport.
