Dallas acquires former SMU midfielder Guarda

FC Dallas announced Monday that it has acquired former SMU midfielder Bruno Guarda from the Colorado Rapids in exchange for the team's natural second and third-round selections in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft and a partial allocation.

"We're very excited to have Bruno Guardo at FC Dallas," said FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman. "What he'll bring to the team is that he has a great work ethic. Attacking he was one of the better players in the country at the collegiate level, and he really surprises you because he works so hard defensively to gain the ball back. Tactically he's very sound; technically he's very sound. He's capable of penetrating with a dribble or the pass, and I look for nothing but good things from Bruno as he comes into the professional ranks with FC Dallas."

The Rapids won a special lottery to obtain the rights to Guarda on July 22. Special lotteries are conducted by the league among interested teams for players who are not eligible to be discovered and who were not drafted. Twelve of the 14 teams participated in last week's lottery for Guarda's rights.

The Brazilian-born Guarda scored 15 goals and added 18 assists playing in his three years at SMU for Hyndman. He was a Herman Trophy semifinalist following both his sophomore and junior years (2006 and 2007).
