Dallas in for shaky time as Hislop signs for them [Thu Jul 6th, 2006]
The 37-year-old joins the MLS West Division leaders after an outstanding World Cup where he was particularly impressive in the opening 0-0 draw with Sweden, pulling off several remarkable saves as the Caribbean side played with 10 men for practically the whole of the second-half.
It was all the more impressive because the former Newcastle United and Portsmouth goalkeeper only knew he was playing hours before the match as first choice Kelvin Jack was injured.
Hislop, whose last game for West Ham was the penalty shootout loss to Liverpool in the FA Cup final, said he was excited about returning to America as he went to Howard University there.
"This is an exciting new challenge for me, said Hislop.
"I went to school in the United States and have a lot of respect for soccer in the country. I look forward to bringing my experience to a great organization and help FC Dallas win championships in America."
Hislop also held out against England for the best part of their first round match before the English finally scored two late goals for a 2-0 win - he did not play in the final 2-0 defeat to Paraguay.
