HOUSTON – On Saturday night against the Colorado Rapids, the Houston Dynamo will attempt to accomplish something the team has failed to do all year: Win two league games in a row.

“It would be helpful,” Houston coach Dominic Kinnear said. “We’re not trying for a winning streak here, just to win the next game. These games coming up are against teams pretty close to us and to get three points is crucial.”

National teams have come calling for FIFA’s next international fixture dates Sept. 3-7, and MLS will be well represented – especially in CONCACAF.

Rafa Márquez will likely wear the captain’s armband for Mexico as El Tri take on Ecuador at Chivas’ new Estadio Omnilife on Sept. 4, then meet Colombia at Tigres UANL’s Estadio Universitario three days later.

When things are not going the way you hope, you take what you can get.

Fresh off their first win against an MLS side in almost three months, the Houston Dynamo are hoping to build off the positives of that victory.

“We put together a great performance last week, and this week has been the best week of training,” said midfielder Brad Davis. “As long as we continue to build on that, things are moving in a positive direction for us.”

Though Dynamo management gathered for a press conference on Tuesday to discuss the club's stadium progress, news that the franchise is seriously considering adding a Designated Player may instead steal the headlines.

Thanks to a Brian Ching header late, the Houston Dynamo were able to breathe a collective sigh of relief after struggling to hold on to two separate two-goal leads against the Chicago Fire on Saturday night.

“We haven’t played with the lead for a while, and we let our guard down,” said head coach Dominic Kinnear. “We started being sloppy, and they were throwing a lot of guys forward as well.”
