With MLS off last weekend due to a FIFA break, four Houston Dynamo players took the field for their respective countries, looking to secure a berth in the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, otherwise known as the Hexagonal. Dynamo defender Andre Hainault was the only victor of the group, as his Canadian side defeated a short-handed Cuba 3-0 at BMO Field in Toronto. Hainault started and played 90 minutes for the Reds, picking up a yellow card in the 82nd minute.

Although the U.S. national team fell 2-1 Friday night in their World Cup qualifying match against Jamaica, Houston Dynamo players had a successful weekend with their respective national teams, going 3-0-0.

Dynamo defender Jermaine Taylor and midfielder Je-Vaughn Watson started and played 90 minutes in the Reggae Boyz' 2-1 win over the United States. Taylor was strong along the Jamaican backline, helping stifle the U.S. attack after the home side gave up the early goal.
