The Dynamo defeated
the Laredo Heat 2-1 yesterday in front of 6,111 fans at Whataburger Field in Corpus Christi. Brad
Davis and Dominic Oduro provided
the goals
for the Dynamo in their first of two exhibition matches during
the World Cup break. Head coach Dominic Kinnear was
pleased
with the venue and the support the fans showed. The Ryan-Sanders
Shootout was the first
soccer game
played at Whataburger Field, typically a baseball stadium for
the AA Corpus Christi Hooks.

In addition
to Anthony Obodai, the Dynamo will
welcome
two more trialists that will play in the Dynamo Charities Cup June
19 against Aguila.

Mark Berman
reports that Oliver Luck has
recommended
Dynamo COO Chris Canetti to replace him as team president.
Canetti was recently named to the Sports Business Journal’s 40 under 40 list.

Residents
of Pasadena, Texas, are excited for the World Cup and
have proven to be avid
soccer fans
through their previous support of the Dynamo. Fans in the
Valley are also ready
to show
their support for the U.S. and Mexican national teams.

A reception
was held at City Hall yesterday to announce that Houston holds the top spot in the race to host the FIFA World Cup in 2018 or 2022. Oliver Luck emphasized the Dynamo’s diverse
roster and fan base
as a reason why Houston
would make an excellent host city.
