Techera helps Whitecaps salvage 1-1 draw with FC Dallas
Jun. 18, 2017
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Cristian Techera scored on a free kick in the 74th minute to help the Vancouver Whitecaps tie FC Dallas 1-1 on Saturday night.
Techera curled a left-footed shot over the wall and past goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez from about 30 yards out for the Uruguayan's fourth of the season.
The Whitecaps brought on 16-year-old Alphonso Davies, who made his debut for Canada in a friendly this week, with 30 minutes to go in hopes of sparking something, and his galloping runs seemed to spark Vancouver (6-6-2) before Techera struck.
Maximiliano Urruti scored for Dallas (6-3-6) in the 52nd minute. He stole the ball from fellow Argentine Matias Laba in midfield and slotted home his eighth goal.
