Only Freddy Adu has scored an MLS goal at a younger age than Jesus Ferreira.
The latest in a long line of FC Dallas young stars, the 16-year-old Ferreira scored soon after subbing into Saturday’s 6-2 win over Real Salt Lake on Saturday.
Ferreira is the son of former Colombian national teamer and FC Dallas midfielder David Ferreira.
Dallas moves to 6W-2L-5T on the young season and boasts the best points-per-game of any team in the Western Conference. Overall, FCD is two points back of Sporting KC with two matches-in-hand.
