For a team suddenly on a slide, going into one of the toughest places to play can seem like the last thing you would want to do. Opportunity, however, has a habit of presenting itself in interesting ways.

The Houston Dynamo head to Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday to face Real Salt Lake, who are on a league record 28-game home unbeaten streak in MLS play. It's the type of challenge that could get the team back on track after beginning May with two losses.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. For Houston Dynamo right back Kofi Sarkodie, that’s why his call-up to the U.S. Under-20 national team for next week's training trip to France is extra sweet: It marks the rookie's first summons to the U.S. youth set-up in almost exactly one year.

After an unbeaten April, the Houston Dynamo are now winless through two games in May, with a goal per game to show for it. While the recent lack of offense is concerning, the way the team is giving up goals is causing just as much worry for a club that has seen its season take a quick and unwelcome change in tone.

Days after allowing two late goals on suspect plays to drop a home result to Colorado last week, the Dynamo gave up two goals that the team felt were self-inflicted to drop a second straight 2-1 result on the road, at Toronto FC this past Saturday.
