After being a backup throughout his career, FC Dallas’ Kyle Zobeck is ready to step up as a starter

Kyle Zobeck has waited to see his name in the starting lineup for years — and even longer to see it for a home game. That all will change Saturday as FCD returns to Toyota Stadium in Frisco to host Houston.

After USL Championships and countless road trips as a backup, the 30-year-old goalkeeper made his MLS debut on Sept. 2 against Sporting Kansas City after starter Jimmy Maurer was pulled because of an injury.

FCD coach Luchi Gonzalez called Zobeck a “warrior” during a session with media earlier this week. Gonzalez said Zobeck’s leadership in the locker room despite not seeing a lot of action has been a testament to his dedication to the club.

“When you talk about Kyle, you put a big smile on my face,” Gonzalez said. “You talk about a soldier to this club for years. Always having teammates’ backs, amazing attitude, commitment. He trains like a beast, he’s a beast of a human being, and we’re just lucky to have him.

“I’m really proud of him to step up in this time.”

According to Zobeck, “half of the team didn’t know” that he was making his MLS debut when he came into the game a little before halftime in Kansas City, but he said they have been supportive overall.

“When you’re first called up, it’s just exciting, there’s that kind of nervous energy that goes along with it,” Zobeck said. “For me, the way my career has gone and having been a backup for so long and having to work behind the scenes for so long, it was a proud moment to take the field for an MLS match last week.”

Zobeck gave up three goals in FCD’s loss to Minnesota on Wednesday. With several injuries in the defense and Reggie Cannon’s departure, FCD has been playing a lot of youngsters and dealing with their inexperience.

However, with another week of practice under his belt, Zobeck feels prepared to stop a Houston offense that has outscored its opponents 11-4 in its last four games.

“We want to put together a full, 90-minute-plus performance,” Zobeck said. “I think we’ve been really good at times these past few games, but we haven’t been great for all 90 minutes”

In a different world, Zobeck’s family would have been able to see his debut in person, but COVID prevented that experience. Zobeck’s father, Bruce, said had they been able to attend they “definitely” would have made the drive from Kyle’s hometown of Coralville, Iowa.

For Bruce, this moment in Kyle’s career has been one he’s been waiting for since Kyle began playing soccer at the age of 4.

“It makes us really proud of him to see that actually happen,” Bruce Zobeck said. “It’s been a lot of years of him working towards this, and to finally see him play in the MLS was just special for us.”

Zobeck became the oldest player drafted into MLS — excluding the league’s inaugural 1996 draft — to make his MLS debut at 30 years, 209 days, according to FC Dallas’ PR Twitter account.

Zobeck’s journey through professional soccer began when FCD drafted him out of Valparaiso in the 2013 SuperDraft. He was released at the end of that season after not making any appearances. He then played for the New York Cosmos before returning to FCD in 2018. Last season, he started in goal for FCD’s USL League One team.

Heading into Saturday’s home match, Zobeck said he wants to manage his emotions better and make sure he’s even-keeled.

“I’ve been working for a long time, I’ve just got to trust my abilities and play the game,” Zobeck said.
