The Houston Dynamo added another Daniel Cruz to their ranks Thursday morning.  

The Colombian-born midfielder (who shares the name with energetic 21-year-old outside midfielder Danny Cruz) began a one-week trial with the Dynamo to
see if he has the type of skills that can enhance their inconsistent
attack.

Characterized as a playmaking midfielder, Cruz was brought to the
attention of Dynamo assistant coach Wade Barrett by a friend. After
reviewing Cruz’s résumé, the Dynamo went to work to arrange a chance to
get to know him personally.

It has been two games and two tough road draws since Houston Dynamo
head coach Dominic Kinnear made sweeping changes in his lineup.

As part of their efforts to reinforce their roster in the
summer transfer window, the Dynamo will welcome Colombian midfielder Daniel
Cruz to Houston
for a trial, beginning Thursday.

Not to be confused with Houston midfielder Danny Cruz, the 30-year-old Cruz is a native of Cali, Colombia, who has played
in the Benelux countries since he was a teenager. He joined Dutch power Ajax at
the age of 17 and made several appearances for the first team in the 2000-01 Eredivisie season.

The cream rises to the top. That's the story of the Week 16 edition of the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week.

Except for the first-timers from Sporting Kansas City, every other player named has been here before. Tally Hall earns a season-high third call among goalkeepers, the FC Dallas duo of Jackson and Brek Shea were at it again and Nick LaBrocca and Joel Lindpere hit the hat trick of Team of the Week mentions.

The Houston Dynamo are coming off an up-and-down first half of their
season, and with fellow Eastern Conference teams making moves to get
better, the calls are coming in from all sides for Houston to follow
suit. One move in particular that caught the attention of the club and its
fans was former Dynamo player Dwayne De Rosario’s departure from the New
York Red Bulls to D.C. United last week.

Tally Hall
got a measure of redemption Sunday night. The Dynamo goalkeeper
made six saves, kept his team in the game, and put on a performance
reminiscent of his early season work in Houston’s 0-0 draw at Colorado.
