With a second consecutive home game looming on Saturday, the Dynamo are maintaining their level of intensity in training sessions this week in the hopes of notching back-to-back wins for the first time all season. Saturday's contest against Philadelphia (7:30 p.m.) will kick off a stretch of three games in eight days - Houston's second such stretch already this year - and holds extra significance as the Dynamo's final home contest before the World Cup break.

Danny Cruz scored in his first-ever MLS start and Dominic Oduro hit an impressive second-half volley as the Houston Dynamo bagged a comfortable 2-0 victory over D.C. United on Saturday night, keeping Houston in the thick of the Western Conference race and heaping further misery on D.C.’s worst-ever start.

When Bobby Boswell talks, people
listen. They may not believe their ears or like what they hear or have any idea
how to respond, but they listen. His is an influential personality, with or
without the captain’s armband he has worn proudly on his right bicep throughout
much of the season.

On
Thursday, the Houston Dynamo finally got some good news, as they officially
received clearance from FIFA for forward Joseph Ngwenya to play for Houston once again. The
Dynamo forward had been signed well over a month ago and will now officially be
allowed to join Houston
and will be available for selection this weekend against D.C. United.

“I’m
excited to be back,” Ngwenya said after Thursday's training session. “Hopefully I can come in and help the team.”

Forward Joseph Ngwenya has been ruled eligible to join the Dynamo by world governing body FIFA, Dynamo Chief Operating Officer Chris Canetti confirmed Thursday morning. The ruling ends a five-week wait for the Dynamo after Ngwenya's last club, Turkish side Antalyaspor, denied Houston's request for Ngwenya's international transfer certificate. Ngwenya will be available for selection for Houston's game against D.C. United this Saturday at Robertson Stadium.

Goalkeeper Tally Hall is set to make his MLS debut for the Dynamo on Saturday against D.C. United, but he should be a familiar face to fans after appearing in seven competitive games and the Dynamo Charities Cup in 2009. In fact, Hall twice tied a club record with 10 saves in a single game. For a photo gallery of Hall's year-plus with the Dynamo, click below:
