FC Dallas has signed Argentine forward Matias Jara to try to build depth at striker.

Coach Schellas Hyndman said Tuesday the club needed more experience at striker because of injuries.

Jara played last season with second-division Guillermo Brown in Argentina, scoring two goals in 15 appearances. He played with third-division Chacarita Juniors the previous season.

The 25-year-old Jara began his career with second-division C.A.I. in Argentina, scoring 12 goals in 61 games. He made 14 appearances with first-division Godoy Cruz in 2009-10, scoring twice.
