In the MLS
Game of the Week
, the Houston Dynamo will travel to Sandy,
Utah, to take on Real Salt Lake. The game kicks off at 8 p.m. CT
and will broadcast on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes. The Dynamo are unbeaten in their
last eight meetings against RSL. Both
teams will look to continue
the form
they showed in their past games, each posting shutouts against
their previous opponent.

The story of the year for the Dynamo has been
the rash of injuries that have occurred. As Dwain Capodice points outs, with Mulrooney and Ching back and Weaver
training again, the triage unit is looking
a little lighter
.

Tonight’s game between the Dynamo and RSL will feature
the USA Bid flag
on the field prior to the game. MLS has pledged its full support behind the
Bid Committee as they attempt to secure the World Cup for the United States
in 2018 or 2022.

Landon Donovan, teammate of Dynamo forward Brian Ching on
the men’s national team, believes that Wayne
Rooney is “worn out”
from all the games he has played over the past few
months. I wouldn’t say Landon is waking
a sleeping giant, but do we really need to add more fuel to this fire?

Reliant Stadium will be rocking
tonight
when Mexico concludes
its pre-World Cup United States tour with a friendly against Angola. Although he believes all of his players are equally
skilled, Mexican national team head coach Javier Aguirre will have to
cut
two players from his roster after the game, to get closer to the 23-man
roster required by FIFA before June 1.
