Houston Dynamo forward Erick "Cubo" Torres likely to have substitute role in MLS debut vs. LA Galaxy
Tuesday night marked a soft opening for the Erick “Cubo” Torres era in Houston. After debuting Tuesday in a 26-minute run-out in a U.S. Open Cup loss, Torres is a day away from starting his Dynamo career in earnest with his first MLS game in front of his new hometown fans.
With him still working on his fitness level, Torres is likely to start his Dynamo career watching from the sideline.
The LA Galaxy’s visits to BBVA Compass Stadium are always among the most eagerly anticipated games of the season, and the prospect of Erick “Cubo” Torres and Steven Gerrard facing off on the same field on Saturday night (8 p.m. CT; TICKETS) only heightens the hype.
Once again, Tyler Deric is up for MLS Save of the Week.
Houston Dynamo lament poor first half vs. Real Salt Lake, but question no-call on Abdoulie Mansally elbow
The Houston Dynamo took two steps back on Saturday night.
SANDY, Utah – Real Salt Lake were not exactly spoiled for choice lineup-wise, but nonetheless picked up much-needed win over a Western Conference opponent thanks to a bit of the spectacular.
Missing two of their star players and even their head coach, RSL pulled out a 2-0 victory over a 10-man Houston Dynamo on Saturday evening, in part thanks to a wonder strike from acting captain and maestro, Javier Morales.
Erick “Cubo” Torres is finally in the Bayou City.
After six months in Mexico and a lengthy stay in limbo as his arrival was delayed, the former Chivas USA forward donned a Houston Dynamo shirt and faced the media on Friday.

It’s the sight Dynamo fans have been eagerly anticipating since news of the blockbuster transfer broke last year: Erick “Cubo” Torres on the field in Houston.
The striker took part in his first training session as a Dynamo designated player on Friday ahead of the team’s road game against Real Salt Lake on Saturday (9 p.m. CT; ROOT SPORTS) and said he’s ready to open a new chapter of his career.
It had been 12 games since the Houston Dynamo pitched a shutout. The defense that started the season hot had cooled off and found it tough to keep teams from hitting the back of the net, many times with Houston having a hand in their opponent’s success.
But on Friday night against former head coach Dominic Kinnear’s San Jose Earthquakes they found the magic touch in the back to notch a 2-0 road win at Avaya Stadium.
