As preparations for the World Cup ramp up, the talk goes to who will and will not be in Brazil representing their country. For Alexander López, time is of the essence when it comes to his World Cup dream.

The Houston Dynamo midfielder has rarely seen the field since joining the MLS outfit last August. He has spent his time catching up to the Dynamo two-way style and getting himself in the type of shape needed to earn minutes with the club.

Head coach Dominic Kinnear would rather play on the weekends than have a bye week. But with the third weekend of the season off two of his opening day starters got a chance to rest injuries. 

Brad Davis (hamstring) and Tony Cascio (knee sprain) took advantage of the bye week, resting their respective injuries. As the team returned to the field Monday the pair was out of the training room and on the field getting work in during the session.

It’s the first disappointing result the Dynamo have suffered all season: the third round of MLS fixtures starts on Saturday and Houston are watching, not playing.

It does not take a math genius to realize that in a 19-team league one side has to sit on the sidelines each week. Sadly for the Dynamo, the scheduling fates have decreed that their turn comes early in the campaign, when tiredness is not an issue, momentum is building and the players would rather be trying to add to a spotless (if brief) record that reads: played two, won two; scored five, conceded none.

Two games, two shutouts: That phrase is music to any defender's ears.

For the Houston Dynamo’s current pair of center backs, David Horst and Jermaine Taylor, it is a confidence booster and although there is work to be done, it is a sign of a strong pairing coming together.
