ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — FC Dallas head coach Luchi Gonzalez gave New Mexico United some props. 


Five days ago, United turned a lot of heads after beating Colorado Rapids. 

They will get the chance to upset another MLS team this week.

The U.S. Open Cup round of 16 kicks off Wednesday, where United will face FC Dallas. 

It's been a grueling stretch the last few weeks, with three matches in the last eight days – resulting in two losses.

There's two more matches this week in Dallas and Los Angeles. 

Former Lobo Chris Wehan talked about the ups and downs of this last week.

"You know, I think we put a lot of our energy into the Colorado game – I think we deserved to win, then we were a little tired coming into Vegas and that showed," Wehan said. "Unfortunately we didn't get the results that we were hoping for."
