Carr, Kandji, Kinnear named to MLS Team of the Week
After capping off a three-win homestand with a 3-0 victory over Montreal on Saturday, the Dynamo have received accolades from the staff at MLSsoccer.com this week.
Here is what impressed the league's writers about each of the Dynamo representatives:
MF: Calen Carr (Houston Dynamo) – The speedster has really taken to the Dynamo's retooled formation – he bagged both goals in Houston’s midweek win over Sporting KC and helped set up the opener in a weekend win over Montreal, all from the right wing side of Dominic Kinnear’s 4-3-3 formation.
FW: Macoumba Kandji (Houston Dynamo) – Another player who has reaped the fruits of the Dynamo's new look, Kandji put in a man of the match performance in a 3-0 triumph over Montreal, bagging two goals including an excellent individual effort to cap off the win.
Coach: Dominic Kinnear (Houston Dynamo) – His shift to a 4-3-3 is starting to play huge dividends, as the Dynamo picked up six points this week and outscored opponents 5-1. Also deserves credit for finding a way to get the best out of role players such as Calen Carr and Mac Kandji while seamlessly integrating new Designated Player Boniek Garcia.
