MLS Regular Season
The Houston Dynamo will resume training this week in preparation for Saturday's crucial showdown with the New England Revolution. See what else is happening around the Dynamo this week.
The latest power rankings are out and following the Dynamo's 3-1 defeat to the Philadelphia Union, the writers at MLSsoccer.com dropped Houston one spot from No. 7 to No. 8. Here is what they had to say about the current state of the Dynamo:
The Houston Dynamo announced today that fewer than 500 tickets remain for Saturday’s match vs. the New England Revolution, presented by Mambo Seafood. The first 5,000 fans through the gates will receive a Dynamo magnet, courtesy of Mambo Seafood.
Last weekend did not go exactly as the Dynamo had planned. After a good week of training and a Thursday night demolition of FAS in the CONCACAF Champions League, Houston was primed to continue that form in MLS play and take three points from the Philadelphia Union. After 90 minutes, however, Houston found itself on the wrong end of a 3-1 scoreline and stuck in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
Goalkeeper Tally Hall
“The game was kind of the same as what the scouting report said. Obviously, there was miscommunication on the first [goal]. Their first one was important. To go down in that manner is frustrating, so it’s off to a bad start and it’s hard to recover. I mean, again, same situation, we go down early in the second half and we’ve got to scramble to make corrections and to find a result and it’s a frustrating game.”
