MLS Regular Season
When the Houston Dynamo line up a corner kick, it’s best to put down the nachos and pay attention. Trust me on this one.
Houston’s long-standing ability to turn set pieces into goals is hardly a Wikileakable secret. It’s probably more newsworthy if Dominic Kinnear’s team suffers some improbable streak of failing to convert off corner kicks and free kicks.

The Dynamo have won back-to-back games, last a late 1-0 victory against the New England Revolution in Houston.
