NEW YORK, N.Y.(Monday, March 21, 2022) – FC Dallas forward Jesús Ferreira was voted the Major League Soccer Player of the Week presented by Continental Tire for the fourth week of the 2022 MLS season.

Fresh off a call up to the U.S. Men’s National Team for upcoming World Cup qualifiers, Ferreira tallied his first scores of the 2022 MLS season in record-setting fashion, becoming the first player in FC Dallas history to record a hat trick in the span of 10 or fewer minutes of game time (Watch All Three Goals Here). He is the ninth player in league history to score a hat trick in the span of 10 minutes or less.

Ferreira opened scoring in the 26th minute, connecting on a cross from Alan Velasco and banging home a shot off the underside of the crossbar (Watch Here). Just four minutes later, a streaking Ferreira headed home a beautiful ball from Nanu (Watch Here) and he completed the hat trick – the first of his career – in the 36th minute with a strong shot from atop the 18-yard box to give Dallas a 3-0 lead ( Watch Here). Adding to his remarkable day, Ferreira provided the assist on Paul Arriola’s 77th minute goal (Watch Here), which cemented FC Dallas’ 4-1 victory over the Portland Timbers.

FC Dallas (2-1-1) returns to action on Saturday, April 2, as they take on the unbeaten Chicago Fire (2-0-2) at Soldier Field (3:30 p.m. ET, Univision, TUDN, Twitter – English audio).

The MLS Player of the Week presented by Continental Tire is selected each week of the regular season through both media and fan voting in a process conducted by MLS Communications. A panel of journalists from the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) comprises 75 percent of the vote, while a Twitter fan vote represents the remaining 25 percent of voting. NASR consists of members of print, television, radio and online media.
