Jesus Ferreira has proven he is one of the most dangerous players in the box this season, and a perfect example of that came late in FC Dallas’s 2-1 win over LAFC.

Ferreira first scored with a free kick just outside the penalty area in the 78th minute to bring his team level. LAFC goalkeeper Maxime Crepeau could have done much better with the save, but Ferreira placed his shot well and took his free kick quickly.

Another quick free kick produced Dallas’ second goal. Ferreira found a window of space after a feed from Paul Arriola and buried a shot into the opposite side.
