Frisco, TX— La Liga’s Sevilla FC brought the heat to the Toyota Center in what would be one of only two games they’ll play in the United States. The five-time European League Champions took home a 3-1 victory against FC Dallas in the 2019 FC Dallas Summer Classic. 

Although this was a club friendly between the two teams, it would be a game that Sevilla FC dominated from the time they hit the pitch. Luuk de Jong didn’t hesitate to get things started early for Sevilla as he would score the team’s and game’s first goal in the first 23 minutes of action.

Yet, Dallas fought back after giving up an early goal. The team responded with a goal of their own with Santiago Mosquera scoring in the 42nd minute, knotting up the game at one. 

Going into halftime with the game tied, the energy from the crowd was high and electric, and both teams looked good. It would seem that neither team wanted to give the other any sort of advantage.

However, Mosquera’s goal would be the only goal that Dallas would see go through the net in their favor. In addition, Sevilla kicked things into high gear going into the second half and lay the beatdown on their opponents in the second half. 

As they did to open up the game, Sevilla would score the half’s opening goal. Joan Jordan would give his team the lead thanks to a penalty kick scored in the 52nd minute, which would give the team the adrenaline rush that they would need to keep the game at the pace and style in which they wanted it.

From that point on, it was tough for Dallas to get back any sense of momentum or rhythm to stop Sevilla. FC Dallas attempted to rally back, however, had a few scoring opportunities that they could not capitalize on, as well as a few really good saves from their goalkeeper, but it was not enough to get them back into it.

Sevilla would add to their lead in the 82nd minute with a goal scored by forward Nolito. Giving the team a 3-1 advantage and the win against FC Dallas. Sevilla traveled long and far, but they only had one thing on their minds, getting that win.

They showcased their dominance and accomplished what they set out to do.
