Two days after signing on with the Union, Freddy Adu is in the starting lineup for tonight's game against FC Dallas. He will be in midfield, playing behind Sébastien Le Toux and Jack McInerney.

FC Dallas' starting lineup includes Brek Shea and Zach Loyd, who were on the United States' roster for the 1-1 draw against Mexico at Lincoln Financial Field this past Wednesday. Shea set up the assist on the U.S.' goal with a trademark run down the left wing. 

Former Union goalkeeper Chris Seitz is FC Dallas' backup tonight.
