FRISCO, Texas (AP) - FC Dallas midfielder Mauro Diaz will miss the playoffs with a torn left Achilles tendon, a significant setback for the MLS-leading club with one game left in the regular season.

Diaz had surgery Wednesday, three days after he was injured in the 89th minute of a 2-1 home victory against Seattle.

The 25-year-old Argentine led FC Dallas with five goals and 13 assists. Diaz had three game-winning goals and seven game-winning assists.

FC Dallas has 59 points, two better than Colorado and five ahead of the Eastern Conference-leading New York Red Bulls. FC Dallas finishes the regular season at the LA Galaxy on Sunday.
