FC Dallas' Mauro Diaz runs away with Etihad Airways Player of the Month award for March

Well, that wasn't even close. 

FC Dallas playmaker Mauro Díaz picked up 63% of the vote to walk away with the Etihad Airways Player of the Month award for March.

It's understandable that the Argentine No. 10 wowed the electorate. In four matches this season, he has been the catalyst for the league's top offense, notching two goals and an assist in FCD's unbeaten start to the campaign.

The play that stands out most from March is probably this turn quick turn and shot on a late winner at home against the Portland Timbers this past weekend.  

The final voting finished like this:

  1. Mauro Díaz (DAL) 63.61%
  2. Nick Rimando (RSL) 18.38%
  3. Michael Bradley (TOR) 8.01%
  4. Federico Higuain (CLB) 7.26%
  5. Will Bruin (HOU) 2.74%
