Age: 29 (06/17/1988)

HOW ACQUIRED: Signed on Feb. 15, 2017, after they acquired his right of first refusal from the Portland timbers in exchange for $75,000 of General Allocation Money and $50,000 of Targeted Allocation Money.

A hard-working winger that is just as capable scoring goals as he is setting them up, Wallace returns to MLS after spending the 2016 season in Portugal and Brazil. The 2015 MLS Cup winner (with Portland) will add depth in the attack for NYCFC, possibly competing for a starting role. Wallace, who represents Costa Rica internationally, grew up in the US and is a green card holder, counting him as a domestic player for MLS roster purposes.

OUTSIDE MLS: Spent the three months of 2016 with Portuguese first-division side Arouca, where he made two league appearances before being sold to Brazil's Sport Recife. Made 24 league appearances and scored four goals for the Brazilian side before rescinding his contract by mutual termination in February 2017.

INTERNATIONAL: Wallace has represented Costa Rica 17 times since beginning his international career in 2011. He has scored three goals for the Ticos, including a crucial one in the semifinal of the 2013 Copa Centroamericana, which they would go on to win.

COLLEGE: Enjoyed a standout collegiate career at the Uni­versity of Maryland, leading the Terrapins to the 2008 NCAA national championship. Started all 46 games he played in over two seasons at Maryland (2007-08), recording 10 goals and four assists in the process.
